Well after 16 years with several long term inactive periods, I passed my checkride yesterday. The ground went better than I expected. That flight was the longest 1.5 hours of my life. Lol. My examiner was very thorough but equally fair. It still hasn’t really sank in to me yet. The strangest part for me is that I still feel like I need to be studying!! In one hand I want to just enjoy it for awhile but at the same time it’s hard to not want to start studying IFR stuff. I’ve enjoyed every minute of my flight training and truly love aviation and learning all I can about it.
