    After months of setbacks (avionics issues), I finally took my IFR checkride and passed with flying colors! Not trying to toot my own horn, but the DPE was a fairly quiet guy and he said the flying was "very good" and it was "the smoothest checkride he has had in a while"

    I really studied my azz off for this one, especially since it was so drawn out. I might post a write up later, but for now I'm gonna relax. Maybe have a beer.

    Just want to thank my sponsors, Pilots of America, my wallet, and my dad.

    Thanks.

    Congrats!!

    The first time you drop out of the clouds and see that runway right where it’s supposed to be will make all that hard work worth it.

    Well done!

    It's a long commute from India for those dual instruction bookings, so not surprised it took so long. ;)

    I got mine done this 12th. I was told never to add any information to your answer.

    Example: What color is the sky?

    Blue.

    Not blue but there’s a cloud out there. Not the molecules of gases scatter the blue colors of sunlight much more effectively than the green and red colors. Therefore, a clean sky appears blue.

    Just answer BLUE and look pretty.

    Yep not too far actually. Have 190 hours now. Going to start the ground school very soon. Probably do the commercial in an Arrow II that is at the original Part 61 school where I got my Private. Would like to sneak a tailwheel rating in there somewhere as I have 7 hours in tail wheels so far...but not sure I will get around to it.
