I am almost ready for the big test — the instrument rating. Just one simulator session and two practice flights remain. The pace has slowed down a bit due to a large number of students arriving at the school from the US, and the patchy weather.
But this has allowed plenty of time for practice and study, time for the wife and friends, and even time for a little early season gliding. At the weekend I managed a 40 minute flight, not bad for February.
The test and its accompanying mock version known as the 170 should be within the next two weeks. Keep everything crossed for me!
