    Add another one to the club! Passed my IR check ride yesterday morning at FLO and today is one year to the day of getting my PPL. Filed home and even got to bust through some clouds (may or may not have requested higher to get into them) and a small rain shower on my way back home to 8A6. I'll do a write up on it when I get some time.

    Yup. Don't know if you're an owner or renter, but if you have insurance let them know. Your rates will go down. They like instrument ratings. For a reason.
