Brian, the official pilot!
It is official...the skies are unsafe...there is a brand new, private pilot loose in the air. Brian passed his check ride and oral exam with the flight examiner yesterday. He's a happy camper, and us two senior pilots are mighty proud of him. I told him I would give up my co-pilot's seat the next time he flies with Dick and me. That way, he can get some time in a more powerful aircraft than what he has been flying, complete with retractable gear...another thing he will have to learn about. Although he is obviously familiar with our plane, it is a different matter to be actually doing the flying...and the landing! He and Dick will certainly have fun going out and playing. Way to go, sweetie! This is just your license to learn. Have fun, but be careful!
