This is a photo of me with the kids and the Champ from 2003! I did all of my training in the Champ for my Recreational license. After I got the recreational license, then I worked on my Private license. The worst part was having to fly a Cessna 150 after having flown a Champ! What a let down… I was really irritated because it had no feeling to it and my feet felt dead – they were used to working much harder in the Champ. It thought the Cessna was punishment!
This photo is my windy day photo of when I got my recreational pilot’s license. The day I took my check ride, I almost cancelled. Â It was quite cold in March that year and about a third of the way through the check ride we got some light snow. Â We were close to the Clinton County airport at the time and I was just about to make a decision to land when we came out from under the little snow cloud. Â The rest of the flight was uneventful, but I was successful at passing the ride.
ThisÂ picture is of me and my very good friend, Nancy Wright. Nancy lives in Michigan, but she is an IAC34 member and usually our very excellent volunteer coordinator for the contest. Â Nancy has a private pilot license.
