A New Adventure

It has been a while since I have shared the harrowing tales that led to me earning my wings. Since my last post, I have taken friends and family on trips around the area to sight see or for the $100 hamburger. (More like $300 hamburger but I digress).

I have now come to a point in my journey where I want to expand my skills and professionalism as a pilot and take the obvious next step. Instrument Flight Training.

Some say the Instrument rating is the toughest rating to achieve. From both the standpoint of ground school and in the air, there are significant challenges. Many say that it is like starting your PPL all over again. I will find out soon enough and I will share each step of the journey with you. I am sure the path ahead will be filled with the feelings of frustration, excitement, and accomplishment. And if hunger becomes one of those feelings, maybe some cross country stops along the way to eat.

I am now flying the venerable Cessna 172 SkyHawk with a new instructor that will be with me through the highs and lows of my journey.

Off to study up on some VOR tracking and buy some foggles!
