Flying with a new instructor today. Really liked my previous one but he was part time and just received a promotion to CRJs and will be gone a lot coming up. I read all the stories about people going through 4-5 instructors and really hoping to not be in that situation. My new CFI is full time so lets hope for the best. Also got a quick question. How long does it normally take to receive your student pilot cert? I submitted all my info electronically on IACRA on 1/23/17. It currently states status: received by registry on 2/03 but haven't had an update since then. The IACRA FAQ states 3 weeks.
