Default 2nd Try is a Charm

For anyone who read my "I failed my initial CFI" post... I JUST PASSED TODAY! ! ! (2nd try)

Gotta say, I still dont feel like I know enough to teach someone to fly, but I'm looking forward to it, probably get started with my first students next Wednesday... crazy.

What a good day to pass a check-ride... time to go celebrate!

Sounds similar to what I heard after the private certificate, but once again, oh-so-true.

After about 200 hours dual given you'll look back and go "christ, what was I doing when I started?"

Congrats man. Remember, if you don't know the answer to a student's question, don't BS them. Tell them you'll find out and follow up on it.

I'm looking forward to being in your shoes in the next few weeks... I think that it's going to be a blast and frickin scary at the same time.

I agree. I'll be in the same spot as you at WMU next spring sometime.

Congrats FlyingPoke.
