We chatted about some flying and then talked about an instructor that might be able to help me out. It's been a thought to get a second opinion about my flying so I asked if he would put us in contact. Tonight I got a call from the new instructor and it was a very enlightening exchange. We discussed my progress, my lessons, flight time, he asked my thoughts, what I was looking to accomplish and what he thinks it will take to get there. I liked everything I heard and his approach and attitude even better. We fly Friday for an evaluation and then will decide the best course of action at that point.
I must say after our chat I feel excited once again about flying and knocking out the check ride. It's going to be a crazy ride from now until April 9th so stayed tuned!
