    So just turned 1 when it comes to being a pilot. The license to learn is just that.

    Managed a lot of cross country time, a couple of fun trips and took up lots of passengers on local flights. One goal I missed was landing at a Bravo...I'll knock that one out this year, maybe spring when its not crappy and cruddy.

    This year I want to do at least 2 family trips of at least 300 miles. I also started up a Fun Flight group at the local airport. With all this crappy weather we've only had one event but we're at almost 30 members with around 20 planes so hopping that gets ramped up once the winter is behind us.

    I also plan to start and do some of the IR this year. I've been beside clouds, above clouds (safely) but not in them so I need some hood time and actual time and now get this done.

    Thanks to all those that helped along the way :)

    Make sure to wave in my general direction as you pass overhead.

    No no, I'm 305nm from you on a 293 heading ;) I was referring to MSP being east of you.
