Firstly, Loren, congratulations to you for your accomplishments and daring to step out of your world to pursue your dreams.
Bloody hell, what is this, a zero to hero launch to Mars? From the OP I gather the first interview was 12FEB yet here it is 28APR and there is STILL more to go before LOFT? Perhaps someone cares to clue me in why its taking so long.
So far Loren has exhibited a gracious attitude about the drawn out process but I would not be surprised if at least secretly he has become exasperated on some level. At this rate he'll age out before taking the line. Just maybe that is what they are looking for...so they can check off that box.
Nonetheless, I imagine Loren is enjoying the ride. Sort of like a IPC/HP/Hi Alt/Jet BFR for free.
it's not uncommon to wait 30-60 days waiting for IOE , after your check ride
..even at mainline ....I know several who have had to repeat a check ride since they couldn't consolidate within 100 days
