    I made it. About 6 months of studying and flying and just passed. Feels great. I have been basking in the great feeling for a couple weeks. Now I just started studying for IFR. I'm using the King School videos and really like it. Able to re watch videos and do practice questions.

    Also starting to think of buying a C182 in a partnership. If anyone interested let me know. I normally fly out of 52F in Roanoke Texas

    To all you studying out there for PPL hang in there and keep at it.

    Nice job Pilot!

    Go fly VFR for a few weeks before you start cramming for the IFR!

    Way to go! PM me, and I will send you a certificate for Amelia's Landing Hotel, good for a free night in any aviation themed room.
