After this whole debacle with my medical, I’m finally set to start CFI training with ATP on July 6th! I’m incredibly nervous but also super excited to have the last 5 months behind me, and to move on to the next phase of training!
Congrats man. Hopefully you get Walt Newsom as your ground instructor. He’s a great guy, I couldn’t speak more highly of him.
Well that’s great to know! My checkin says check in 10am and the instructor listed is Newsom! Granted the ground school will be all online but I think that’ll be who I get
Hey Joshua, just out of curiosity, when did you complete the program?
I took my Comm SE on Dec 5th last year then realized I had to fix my medical mistake so have been grounded for like several months until now when I’m good to fly again! Otherwise I’ll expected finish date was feb or March
Ooo nice. I read that wrong. Thought you said you were starting indoc. But congrats man! Always nice to get back in that cockpit
Ya it is! I was able to pay for 10 extra hours too which will be nice so I can get comfortable in a plan I’m used to
CFI checkride in a like 2 weeks! Haven’t started teaching yet but I already feel my knowledge in certain areas has improved tremendously!
Please let us know how it goes. The CFI check ride is a tough one, but I bet you do just fine. Keep up the studying.
That’s the plan! The gouge makes this guy appear to be fairly easy but I’m studying as if its going to be hard/without bias because I want to be as prepped as possible!
Gouges are great but as always nothing is guaranteed. Last minute replacement, DE has a fight with spouse, gets a ticket on the way to the airport, just doesn’t like your face. Study as if you heard this guy’s the worst ever!
Exactly! Not going to let his gouge make me complacent!
Of course we never study the gouge, we study for the check ride to make sure that we can be the best darn pilots/CFIs possible
Bingo! I’m not even a CFI yet and so excited to be one!
And CFI checkride
Great work man, super pumped for you!
Hey you’ll be right behind him in a couple of months.
Great work, congratulations! Almost finished…
Almost done! This checkride was interesting to say the least! We started my oral at breakfast, of which he bought us both food.
