    Woooooooooooooooooooot !!!!

    Well, if you couldn't tell by the thread title/starter combo what this is:

    I PASSED !!!



    Yep, went up to Bluffton in the 152 and am now an official FAA Private Pilot. Thanks to all of you who wished me well. I already took my dad up for a flight.

    It is really a great feeling to do something like that. It is a real sense of accomplishment. Now, I really just have a license to learn.

    Brembo & Brent:

    Thanks for the congrats!

    It took me since April 17 (7 months and 5 days). It isn't really fast, but not too bad. Some people do it in a couple months if they really kick butt and take names. For me, weather, work and vacation cut into my flying. LOL

    Brent, I am thinking about flying for the Highway Patrol and/or ANG, but for now, it's for fun.
