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.

Congratulations! Your Boy Scout preparedness will definitely pay off. I love the "go, no go" check.

I should try to use that myself.

Good luck with the lessons.

Just wanted to wish you the best of luck with your inaugural flight on Sunday.

I'm hoping the Boy Scouts will give you your flight badge soon - you certainly deserve it.

I can't wait to hear all about your first of many flights on Sunday. 8-)

LL,
