Start of the summer

Jessica had the last day of school today and now we had the whole summer to go or just the 2 months that it is. The camping trip is now canceled because well from what I hear there is going to be a 3 or 4 in. of snow on the ground so well it doesn't sound like fun camping. so the back up plan is to go see Indiana Jones and go out to eat it should be good I'm really excited well. 

So in my life things are going well i went on my first flight cross county trip it was really fun. I had plans to fly up to Prescott then over to Payson and eat lunch there. But when i woke up that morning and looked at the weather it was too windy in Prescott so I had to make a change in plans but i had to fly at a airport that was above 4000 ft. so the only one that was close and had good weather was Willcox. We didn't stay in that whole long then we went up to Safford. The flight felt like my first flight all over again. there was so much going on inside the plane it was crazy. A lot of new things to learn. It was so much fun though at the end of the flight I almost forgot that I was doing this all for school and not just for fun. It was great!

I also over the week bought a MacBook. I've eyed the one Jessica had that the school gave her and really fell in love with everything, so i went and got one of my own here is a pic it taking a pic of it self.

My IFR story

An ifr story I finally did it this December I passed my instrument rating so I’m now a commercial land and sea instrument rated pilot single engine. It definitely took a long time to do I started instrument flying about 10 years ago. It wasn’t that I never wanted to get my instrument rating it’s that I ran out of money. I got my private pilots certificate in the fall of 2008 in the spring of the year I got married. I was going to Arizona State with ambitions to become a commercial pilot. By the time I got my private license the financial recession that happened that year in the next few years after was starting to manifest itself. I continued flight training seeing all my instructors leave for the airlines and then less than a year later come back to CFIs. By the end of the spring of 2009 I had changed my major to aviation management degree and decided to pursue aviation using part 61 I saw that I needed to pinch every penny that I could I still had ambitions to become an airline p
