Four things you can probably do with a private pilot licence

I am the pilot

TechReviewsOpinions

We can imagine living the Kardashian life and impressing our dates with our licence to fly.

We have probably fantasised driving our own private jet at some point in our lives. But what if it does not have to stay as a fantasy?

To find out what it feels like to fly, Youth.SG tried the Redbird MCX flight simulator at FlightSchool.sg, which mimics an actual aircraft flying experience.

After our 10-minute trial session, we found that the sensation of "flight" was similar to the Transformers' ride in Universal Studios Singapore, albeit more realistic and less intense.

THE SIMULATOR WAS A CABIN (PICTURED ABOVE) THAT JERKED IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS AS WE "FLEW".

Now that we've had our first taste of "flight", here are four things we can probably use our private flight licence for – if we had our own jet, that is.

1. Fly somewhere for a meal

Bored of local cuisine? No worries. You can hop on your private jet any time for a piping hot bowl of Penang laksa for brunch, before flying back home. And while you're at it, why not make a pit stop at Malacca for cendol?

Travelling does not get more efficient than this.

2. Impress your date

You don't have to take your partners on a faraway vacation. Even if you're only flying from Seletar to Changi, you're bound to sweep their feet off the ground.

Let's face it – nobody can refuse a gorgeous bird's eye view of the earth.

However, you'll probably spoil your own market for any future surprises, so you might want to keep this one to yourself until you're done with all the little surprises.

3. Be your own boss

Now that you have your own licence and private jet, there is no need to wait for everyone to hop on board. You get to decide when you want to take off.

Besides, you get to choose your own route when you're travelling to different countries. No more long layovers, yay!

4. Live the jetsetter life

Your private jet probably wouldn't be as extravagant as the Kardashians', but simply owning one is enough to elicit a crowd of "Wow"s.

Besides avoiding crying babies and fidgety passengers who have a penchant for kicking seats, owning your own private jet means you get to do whatever you want, be it fancy pyjama parties or facial sessions on board.

If you want to be a true blue Kardashian, don't forget to take lots of selfies while at it. I mean, why not? The bragging rights are all yours.

What else would you want to do with a private flight licence?
