I was pretty upbeat knowing full well what I would be told so it really came as no shock when I heard the words. I am going to meet with a specialist that does the revision surgery on March 2nd. I expressed a few concerns during the initial consultation this morning; I must pass my instrument check ride first(new target mid march) and second I must be able to make the flight to Gaston's in June. The instruments ticket wasn't a problem, that was on me but the June trip might be a bit harder to deal with since he said its a hard time getting in the Archer. Yes, the Doctor flys the Piper Cherokee line and has flown an Archer from time to time. He obtained his PPL at KPNE, North Philly.
More news as it happens, for now, study the PTS and hit the sim for some approaches! I did make a call to the flight school and talked with my CFII about getting finished up ASAP. I have a three hour session scheduled on the 28th then I may take a few days off to get ready for the "ride".
