I passed my instrument checkride last night and am the proud new owner of a new temporary airmen certificate with a new rating. This message board, has been a great resource for discussion and splitting regs and hairs down to the smallest details. After discussing all of these things with all of you fantastic pilots, the oral exam was a breeze. My CFII had me well prepared and all of the flying portions went just as expected. The entire practical test went EXACTLY according to the ACS. Nothing more, nothing less. ACS 10/10, highly recommended. Thank you to everyone for your support.
