    Infra-red? ;-) LOL!

    Good luck! I did mine at night, having done most of my instrument training at night it was not a big deal!

    Just remember to relax!

    Am guessing you didn't fly today? Winds looked sporty for your area ... I safety piloted yesterday and we landed in 25G30, not a problem except that the plane is a tail dragger ... pilot has a million hours flying and treated the landing as a "ho-hum" ....

    Yes, postponed. Now it's a problem of examiner schedule and trying to get it done before annual runs out. Oi!

    It’s Always something. Hopefully you get ‘Er done!!
    Obstacles to my ride:
    1.broken leg
    2.annual
    3. Weather
    4. Death in dpe family
    5. Weather
    6. Leaky fuel bladder (replaced)
    7. Made it-forgot my pilots license. Oye!
    8. Weather
    9. done!
    About 5-6 months.
    Lots of scrambling to get 3 hours of up with CFI and to keep myself flying too
    You will get there and get it done. For me it didn’t feel like a victory- just a relief!

    Was rescheduled for tomorrow. Until, examiner got stuck out of town on his flying job with a broken airplane.
