My CFI been promising checkride for last 4 weeks. Thought next week was it but appears that was false. Called that DPE yesterday; says he's busy and can't schedule me in until next month-ish... maybe. It's been almost two months since I've been ready for checkride... very frustrating! Do other student pilots go through this ordeal? Watching all the planes overhead today... so close, but so far(about 2000AGL). I'm feel like a always-bridesmaid-but-never-a-bride student pilot. Anyone recommend a DPE in SoCal area?
