Rich's Quest For Flight

My father was a pilot. He died doing what he loved to do. It has been a goal of my life to become a pilot. Now I have chance to do so. Follow me as I pursue my dream.

Ground lesson today. Pity, the weather was just gorgeous today after a day of stormy weather yesterday. But alas, 02E is in for its annual service, so it was a ground session today. Today's topics were communications procedures and the weather. Pretty simple for me, since I had quite a bit of experience talking on radios during my army days, and these procedures are not a from cry from what the military does. As for the weather? Well, let's just say my degree in Meteorology is finally proving useful after 20 years.

Test time is approaching, and my end of June target seems very realistic. I have one more chapter of the ASA ground prep and about two chapters of the Jepp private pilot manual. I have at least three practice tests I can take, plus I think Adam will be giving me one as well. Looking at the June calendar, I am scheduled for roughly 7.5 hours of flying time, surely my first solo will happen this month. Get past those two milestones, then we'll start getting into cross country flight. Next lesson is Saturday, see you then, and thanks for stopping by.
