Ronnie Liang finally graduates pilot course, sets his eyes to a new goal which is earning a commercial pilot license.
After his successful solo concert LovexRomance last November 8 at the Music Museum, Viva Records balladeer Ronnie Liang adds another feather in his cap.
He has finally fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a pilot as he graduates from his aviaton course earlier today, November 26, in a ceremony held at the APG International Aviation Academy in Subic.
Today, Ronnie received his pin, which marks him as a solo pilot. And in order to become a solo pilot, one has to complete 20 hours of flying time.
And now, he has his eyes set on a new goal: earning a Private Pilot license, which requires 30 hours of flying time and eventually Commercial Pilot license—his ultimate pilot dream.
But before qualifying to be an official commercial pilot, Ronnie needs to finish 200 hours of flying time.
“During the graduation, doon na ako lalagyan ng epaulettes, yung sa shoulder tapos sasaksakan ng pakpak sa dibdib…luluhod sa propeller, bubuhusan ng tubig and all. Hopefully ang graduation ko po is this month (October) or next month (November).” says Ronnie on his past interview with pikapika.
According to Ronnie, even if he becomes a pilot, he will still continue his singing career. He even joked, in the same interview, that flying a plane can also be another platform for him to promote his future singles as he can sing for his passengers.
In the photos uploaded on Instagram by movie reporter Rommel Gonzales, the singing pilot can be seen smiling from ear to ear despite being drenched in water while kneeling under an aircraft propeller.
Present at the pinning ceremony were the singer-actor’s flight instructor Capt. Christian Atanacio and APG’s school administrator Capt. John Corda.
Ronnie ended his graduation with a bang by riding the aircraft and simply drove around the runway because of the no-flight zone rule to give way to the on-going SEA Games in the country.
Congratulations, Captain Ronnie Liang!
