Go, No Go?
Today I decided to make the decision whether to start flight training or not. I think I knew that the answer would be to go for it but having been raised a Boy Scout I know the importance of being prepared. So I went through my pre-flight training checklist: Do I have the time, the dedication, finances, support, a good school, and an instructor I think I will like?
Today, I answered all the questions in my head. I went through the go, no go systems check. I must admit it was not nearly as dramatic as those done by Gene Kranz of NASA preparing for the Apollo missions. For the most part I think I am ready.
So, I called up Queen City Flight Training and talked to the Flight Instructor I met on Thursday evening and signed up for my first two lessons. My first lesson will be two hours on Sunday afternoon. I will follow it up with a night lesson Wednesday night.Posted by Todd McClamroch at April 30, 2004 8:56 PM
