Good job Scott. Of all my training, I preach the gospel of the instrument rating at every chance. It just makes you a better pilot.

Contrats!!

Scott,

Your thorough approach to the rating shows in your posts, congratulations!

As you now know, single-pilot, hard IFR can be challenging. I suggest you haul a safety pilot along (your wife?) to help with the chores during the 'Phase 1' testing of your new rating.

Enjoy...

Gary, it looks like we're coming to see you in the high country in a couple of months. I'll make sure I rub it in.

Yep, that is the plan. Tanya is great at holding my feet to the fire for precision when it counts. She gets almost as much credit for making this happen.

No kidding! I think the last com that you guys heard from us on that trip was that instrument training would begin when we got home, and it did.

Default Big Congrats!

BIG CONGRATS SCOTT!

Glad to hear you got it done. Now go out and file often and stay current!
I am glad Tanya is going to do it as well. I have been after my wife for
quite some time to get her IR. She is planning to do it in the near future as well.
I mean it's not like she doesn't have a flight instructor handy!
