  • Nice day flying...

    So it wasn't today, it was Thursday. I didn't go very far either, just around the airport. But it was my CHECKRIDE! After about 30 years thinking and dreaming about being a pilot I finally did it! Feels awesome to be done with flight school (for a while anyway, until I decide to start on IFR) and looking forward to just getting more proficient and comfortable in the air.

        Welcome to the club!
        May it open the door to a whole new perspective on life.
        However the supplies in the hanger may have that covered!

          That. Is. Awesome! Congrats on the huge milestone.
          I'm reading a book that features Dick Bong, the WWII P-38 ace your airport is named after.

            I am looking at buying a hanger at Boyington Field. Pappy was the second Skipper of my first squadron.

            Where do you fly out of? Up north? I'm currently out of Anoka County but will be Buffalo next year.

              Yeah, I live near Moose Lake (KMZH) but did my flight school out of Superior WI (KSUW) and I'm an EAA member of 1221 out of Cloquet, MN (KCOQ)
