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.
