Learning to fly is both amazing and challenging at the same time. I found taking off and flying around pretty easy to pick up, but had a really hard time learning to land consistently. I still have bad landings. Whatever you find challenging though wont take as long as you expect to start to get proficient at. You just have to stick it though the lessons when it’s not fun. I spent probably 10 lessons in a row doing nothing but taking off and landing, which was exhausting and frustrating, but in the end really fun and rewarding when I finally got it.
As far as preparing, just read ahead in the book once you get it and take the time to really familiarize yourself with the plane and how it works. If you aren’t familiar with how engines work, it might be helpful to study that a little.
Anyway, flying is an amazing feeling, especially when you start going to other airports and flying on your own.
