Husband is Instrument Rated!

After a discontinuance due to weather two weeks back, Husband is finally instrument rated! Congratulations, Husband!

We had a great (non-flying) Thanksgiving trip to New York. The insane traffic (7 hours from DC to NYC) reminded us that we bought an airplane, learned to fly, and got our instrument ratings so that we wouldn't have to do these drives. Somehow, given the weak economy, and our seemingly flexible schedules, we (okay, I) decided that we should drive instead of fly. Lesson learned, though. Flying far beats the agony of driving.

I'll get around to posting something substantive again soon. I haven't been flying since before Thanksgiving due to a cold that just won't go away. I'm hoping to be back in flying form by the end of the week, though.

Flap hard...

Congratulations to both of you! I now know all of the effort that it takes for that rating (I'm months behind you) and I have a great deal of respect for both of you getting it.

Congrats to your other half on obtaining the IR!! Now, say again who is PIC on the next flight?? :)

Congrats agin to you both on all the hard work and time put into the ratings.

I hope to schedule my IR checkride if Mary and I stop flying long enough to let me save a few $$ for the examiner.

Happy Holidays!
