    Thumbs up Passed The Checkride - Dreams Come True

    Ever since I could sound out the word "Airplane," my fascination with these flying machines only grew with age. I would always tell people as a child that'd I'd be a Pilot one day. Today after much hard work, studying, training and fun flying, my dreams came true and I'm forever grateful to everyone, family, friends, L4P members, and others that have supported me throughout. Even though this accomplishment to some may seem minute but for me it's very humbling.

    I have only been on here for a short period of time and in that period of time I have been fortunate enough to meet some great people here and from the Surface to Flight Level 600 and beyond lol I thank each and everyone of you. Thanks Aimee, Clay, 22lambo, KieranR, senseless1707, [email protected], DClark1983, mtm_motors, DRS31649, N360LL, Access Custom Jets, & last but not least, Arthur. You guys are all welcome aboard anytime.

    God Speed!

    Congrats! It is certainly a feeling of accomplishment. I remember the day I took my checkride, and it is one I will never forget. I ran into so many barriers on the way, but I'm glad I stuck with it and finished.

    You have something that many desire, and even begin working towards, but few attain.

    Congrats, dude!!!

    I just passed mine 2 weeks ago, and it's absolutely surreal. I, and I'm sure you do as well, wake up every morning with a stupid grin on my face because I can tell people (but mostly just myself ) that I'm a pilot!!!!! If you're ever over on the east coast, drop by and I'll show you why helicopters are better

    @mtm: Thanks, no other feeling like it. I'm still waiting for it to hit me, it hasn't just yet lol.

    @ACJ: Thank you! Looking forward to flying with you guys. Keep up the hard work!

    @KieranR: Congratulations! Right back at ya! You are more than welcome to sit left seat anytime you are in SoCal. Btw the difference between a helicopter pilot and a fixed wing pilot is that a fixed wing pilot breaks ground and flies into the wind. A helicopter pilot breaks wind and flies into the ground.

    Happy & Safe Flying Buddy!
