Got my Pilot Certificate today!

Recommended Posts

Today I passed my flying test! 017_happy_dance.gif.8a199466e9bd67cc25ecc8b442db76ba.gif

 

We had pretty-much perfect weather, a 10 kt wind straight down RWY 36 and clear skies and no turbulence! I was put through my paces out in the training area and then we came back for a couple of normal circuits (including one glide approach), and finished off switching to 05 for a few crosswind CCTS.

 

I'm looking forward to exploring the local area a bit more... It will be exciting to go outside the training area, and rent a plane on non flying school days! 014_spot_on.gif.1f3bdf64e5eb969e67a583c9d350cd1f.gif

 

Next: on to the passenger endorsement so I can finally share the fun with others!! 024_cool.gif.7a88a3168ebd868f5549631161e2b369.gifgleam.gif.61a3085bab2441797a6de7bfc35070cb.gif

Great stuff Evan. You will find that 25nm is quite a reasonable area to explore and practice local navigation as well while you are adding hours to your log.

 

Congratulations.

Thanks everyone! You guys are all awesome! 018_hug.gif.8f44196246785568c4ba31412287795a.gif

 

I've had the 25nm circle drawn on my map for quite a while now (as a bit of an incentive to myself), unfortunately from Ballarat the border just falls short of Bacchus Marsh, Lethbridge and Maryborough! Oh well, I'll have to wait until I do my cross country before I can 'drop in' on some of you out there!!! 080_plane.gif.36548049f8f1bc4c332462aa4f981ffb.gif

Thanks again all.

 

Congratulations Evan! You seem to have arrived there pretty quickly - how many hours have you logged now in total?

I'm amazed that somebody hasn't already trotted out the "It's a licence to learn". Of course, you probably realise that. And you will now be building up a list in your mind of all the places within 25 nm where you could do a forced or precautionary landing if you had to.037_yikes.gif.f44636559f7f2c4c52637b7ff2322907.gif

 

Enjoy the great privilege that it is is to pilot an aeroplane and give yourself a huge pat on the back for a fantastic achievement.011_clap.gif.c796ec930025ef6b94efb6b089d30b16.gif:thumb_up::clap2:

Hey Don, yeah I was surprised at that myself! My instructor didn't have to say that once he had passed me - due to the fact that he mentions it during the course of each and every lesson 072_teacher.gif.7912536ad0b89695f6408008328df571.gif092_idea.gif.47940f0a63d4c3c507771e6510e944e5.gif!

 

Pretty quickly?? I started back in Jul 2010, so to me it feels like forever! 031_loopy.gif.e6c12871a67563904dadc7a0d20945bf.gif I've racked up just over 35 hours in my journey so far.

 

congratulations!

it's always the way that places are 27nm away )-:

That's very true!! 035_doh.gif.37538967d128bb0e6085e5fccd66c98b.gif

Well done! :clap2: You will enjoy exploring the 25nm, but want to get further, so good luck on getting your XC endorsement!

Well done mate! You're going to enjoy scooting around that 25nm circle. It's actually a pretty large area but you'll definately be hanging out for your XC. I just did mine and flew to Temora as my first nav away from home and loved it!

Congratulations!!! In the not too distant future I can see you drawing a circle around that great big map of AUSTRALIA.080_plane.gif.36548049f8f1bc4c332462aa4f981ffb.gif
