So yesterday I finally passed my private check ride. After alot of weather delays and many other problems I finally got it done. And after dreading it because of the exacting standards my instructor held me to found it to be incredibly easy. It feels so great to finally be a helicopter pilot.

Nice job! I can remember flying with my CFI for an hour, then flying down to LGB to do the checkride, and then flying back I was so worn out I didnt want to fly for a week (but I did!).

Congratulations!

Fly Safe !!

I know the feeling. I failed my checkride first because of slope operation in the light mist. The grass was a bit slippery so my angle was just over 10 degrees. When I was done the second checkride I was so relieved and happy! Congratulation!
