Passed my ppl check ride this week! Started training in 1983 at the age of 17 with my dad as my instructor. Got about halfway thru before I got distracted and quit. Pretty sure a girl was involved. Anywho, fast forward 35 yrs and I decided to get back to it. Training was a blast, but it sure seemed a lot harder to absorb and retain the material now than it did back in the day.
