    Flying

    I earned my Private Pilot Certificate this week, and I'm pretty excited about it!

    I started my training over the Christmas break last year. Got my license at 42.9 hours (40 is minimum, 50+ is average).

    Anyone else into aviation?

    Nice. I've always wanted to, and almost started in High School. My dad is a private pilot and has been flying for decades, and I've been going up with him since before I was old enough to even remember. With a bit of studying of certain Navigational and radio systems and procedure, I'm pretty sure I could pass a check flight right now

    It'd be tough. I'll be trying to get in around 7pm. We could fly early sun morning!

    Got to fly in a Boeing 777 simulator today. Amazing experience!



    Honestly, it felt soooo real! A friend is an instructor at Delta and got me two hours bright and early this morning.
