June 27th, 2018-Mike Price the FAA examiner sent me a text last night and asked if I wanted the unexpected open slot he had for today and I said "YES!" I have been training and studying since December for this oral and flight exam. The first lesson I had in the twin engine plane resulted in a total electrical failure and we decided to land at KSHD. My lessons were stretched out and this is the longest I have ever had to wait for a checkride. So THANKFUL to be done! I need 25 multi hours as a requirement for the regional airlines and I have 17 hours. Almost there! I also need 1500 flying hours and I have 1350. Almost there!
This airplane is a Piper Twin Commanche and the tail number is 7288Y. Thanks to Alex Kelley my boss and instructor for teaching me how to fly this plane.
I will always have the passion of a physical educator burning inside me. Here are the results of my heart rate during the flight portion of my test. I got 47 min of cardio and never left my seat!
