What a journey! My training was amazing. I started out with Amanda and then Jon took over for the majority of it. I have to say that IFR training is a lot of work, but in the end worthwhile. I found that you really have to practice the flying to keep your skills up – having time off in the middle isn’t helpful.
My check ride was at CMA with Joe Justice. What a long long day. I did the flight part of my check ride at night – it was actually easier cause you can see the lights (shhh… don’t tell anyone). It was a great experience and I learned a lot. Joe is a great guy!
