How auspicious that the endless paperwork for my license should finish on the first year anniversary of my Father’s Day solo! I finally got to fulfill my dream of taking Tonet flying, with me in the left seat! (Pictures coming with his post – he’s the one with Picasa!)
My new lucky number is 07P181. I’m a Private Pilot!!! Wahooo!!!!
It’s been an amazing week. The first few days of school have been very relaxing, and it’s wonderful to see all my friends again.
In the meantime, while I struggle through the immense hardships of school, Tonet is off globetrotting to the US, where his Asian palate will no doubt bewail the massive infusions of hamburgers and barbecue sauce. His travel from San Fransisco to Chicago has so far taken longer than his trans-Pacific flight from Hong Kong, no doubt the result of new airline regulations against inane business trips. 😀
He’d better come back soon. I need to familiarize myself with more routes and 1513’s avionics! I’ve got half a dozen prospective passengers lined up!
Here we see one of my buddies preparing for the flight. 😀
Senior year’s not just about theses and exams, you see.
In addition to my getting my pilot’s license, I’ve just been elected as the course representative for AB Literature. In addition to administrative duties, this also makes me the block webmaster.
As course rep, I’m all for computerization. 😉
I have my own place, a new pilot’s license, a riotously fun group of classmates, and a new copilot. This is gonna be a great year!
