First the original milestones. Now the recurring milestones. Today was the first renewal of my original medical certificate. So I am medically fit in the eyes of the FAA for another two years. Naturally I am still responsible for reviewing my own medical status prior to each flight. I was hit with a minor surprise: my blood pressure was just below the maximum limit. This is the first time ever that my blood pressure was a concern. Perhaps it's age, perhaps it's diet. I reckon I have some monitoring to do.
By the way, on the application, I recorded 82 total hours flown with 15 of those in the last 6 months. It was a long and weather filled winter this year. I certainly resolve to improve the hours. My original plan was to fly to as many pancake breakfasts that I could reach. Today's events are causing me to rethink that strategy.
