I finally did it!!!
Well since May 15th, I have been very busy doing something up until now, I only dreamed of! I am now a Private Pilot!!!!! I have been very busy training and testing so it left me no extra time to keep in touch. Sorry.
I took my family up today for the first time. My kids loved it! Wife got a migraine from being stressed! LOL
Anyways, my goal is to get my instrument, commercial, multiengine and ATP.
Oh yea, and start building my new sim!

Hey - congratulations!! A great achievement. I remember that feeling like it was yesterday (even tho it was 20 years ago ).
Just dream up every excuse you can to fly and share costs with others - and fly far and wide. Keeping current and safe without going broke is the challenge.Nic D'Alessandro

I guess all those hours in the 737 sim finally paid off. I trained in the new G1000 equipped 172. Since i was already used to a glass cockpit eniroment, it was an easy transition. It still hasn't really sunk in yet though.
It cost 110.00 per hour to rent so i need a better job now LOL
