Rajinda Takes to the Skies

Congratulations to Rajinda Jayawardena who has become our first ever student to receive a Private Pilot Licence while still at school. This involved over 60 hours of flight time, including over 13 hours of solo flying, and passing several written examinations. Rajinda is now licensed to fly private aeroplanes both in Sri Lanka and overseas. The ultimate goal for Rajinda is to gain his commercial licence and become a Sri Lankan Airlines pilot. Listen carefully on future flights as one day you may be flown by a Captain Jayawardena!

Sri Lankan Airlines pilot Captain Niranjan Johnpulle also visited the school to speak in Assembly as part of our Life Studies programme and returned to the school to give a talk to twenty students interested in pursuing a career in aviation-related industries as engineers or pilots.
