Earned my Private Pilot Certificate!

Recommended Posts

I remember a topic a while back discussing pilot's certificates, and someone told me to be sure to shout out when I earned my certificate.  I earned it this past Thursday, and honestly I can't remember being so excited since my first solo last year.  It's been a long road, but I have never before felt such a sense of accomplishment.  It's been my dream to be a pilot since I was 5 years old, and now at 52 I can finally say when people ask me if I am a pilot:


YES, I AM:yahoo:

Well done, how many hours did it take you in total? 


A little while ago, I thought about getting my fling-wing certificate but now that I'm 60 and have Type II diabetes (for now), I don't want the enormous expense ($250+ per flight hour or more) and don't think I can pass a flight physical.

Congratulations Frank.

That is a SUPERB  and very IMPRESSIVE  achievement Captain !!



Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

Flying is Hypnotic and all pilots are willing victims to the spell. What flying has taught you no doubt is that you overcome fear with knowledge. 

Frank , Oh the Places you'll  go to.

:wow:  :clap2:

Huge applause  on your hard work  and getting your wings.

Drinks are on you.
