    CONGRATULATIONS !!! A magic door has been opened for you ------------ use it wisely and use it happily. Days and days of great adventure await you. And remember to profit from the mistakes of others - - - you won't live long enough to make them all yourself.

    Sweet, congrats! Good choice going with Mike, by the way. I heard he's a fair DPE.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    How long did he keep you out? Mine was 2.3 hours, thought it would never end.

    Congrats, must be quite the thrill and rewarding all at once. Always wanted to pursue that goal myself but might be getting too long in the tooth to start now. What are your plans now that you are on your own? Hunting yourself or working for an outfitter??

    Congratulations. I'm sure you are going to have a blast flying to the many great out and away places in Ak. Post pictures, like Troy.

    Man you got it easy. like I said mine was 2.3 and at lest 50% under the hood. I remember one maneuver he had me do very well. Straight and level at 2000, me with the hood on. Examiner-" Maintain this heading and climb to 3000. And I want to hear the stall horn the whole way." Seemed like it took hours.
