DR,
Congrats that is a big deal! Now you just have to stay current and fly when a lot of others are not! Takes a different kind of motivation.

Congratulations Doug!
It's always a relief when a milestone is reached! It looks like you worked very hard for this and were well prepared.
I recently signed off a student for his commercial and he is now first officer for a medical flight operation. You never know what doors will open up for you.
You might need to add a commercial multi now!

congratulations! Now you have found the only way to make a small fortune in aviation other than starting with a large fortune.

For a while I had Garmin Pilot and I really liked it. Nice interface - very intuitive - never read the instructions. But I couldn't rationalize the annual fees for both Garmin and Foreflight, which was the first one I ever used, so I had to make a choice. I never figured out how to do that view with the inverted wedding cake Class B and C airspace in Pilot. That is really slick. Foreflight better wake up.

I hope that you can find a fun flying job to supplement your income. Very cool that you were able to do your ratings in an RV. The only downer is that whatever you end up flying next will probably not be anywhere near as capable, especially in terms of avionics.

Can you write off the cost of commercial training on your taxes?

FYI, ForeFlight does that:

Nice work, humble host! Now you can use the overused, but so true, "I can't believe they pay me to do this!"
