    I soloed out more than 22,000 hours ago, on a kinda snowy, windy day at Lake Hood. My instructor didn't ask for one trip around the patch, but just got out and closed the door of the ski-equpped Aeronca 65-hp Champ. I flew directloy to the high practice area to practice spins, and my instructyor lost sight of me in the driving snow. He was so pissed at me when I returned thatt he forgot to clip my shirt tail . . .

    For those of us who have yet to do a checkride, would you be interested in doing a brief overview of the process? What maneuvers you were asked to do, etc. What the DPE threw at you to trip you up, distract you, etc.? Is providing this information allowed? If not, please disregard. I am just curious since I hope to be doing mine later this year.

    The Private pilot ACS is a good place to start..
