My crazy job is coming to a close. I’m sad it’s over because I love my co-workers and bosses, but glad to finally be getting some free time soon. And you know I’ll be flying again since spring is right around the corner, which hopefully means nicer weather.
I’ve been working outside these past few months – or well, partly outside but not as much as the guys – and I am SO OVER snow! If you watch hockey, you could see what I was dealing with on the outdoor game in Chicago. I spent the game cleaning off snow from pathways every commercial break. It ended up being very fun because the only other girl on the team and I started competing against one another.
Now I’m gearing up to begin studying for my dispatcher license. I’ve already dipped into the Gleim book to take the ADX, it’s basically the ATP with a few extra questions related to dispatchers. Oh my! There is a LOT about aerodynamics I had no idea about. I thought it would stay mostly the same, but it gets quite complex. It’s a THICK book, but I’m hoping to hanker down and finish the written exam by end of April.
For my flying, oh there are so many things I want to do, if only I had unlimited money! I am definitely planning to go up with my CFI and review landings after such a long break. Maybe throw some spins in there too? Hopefully. My school just got a Piper Arrow and now a complex endorsement seems to be calling my name. And then of course, instrument rating. I still want it, and found a place in Texas that I could get most of my XC time there plus the rating in about $5000. There is also a seaplane rating too. Too many options! Again, always having to remind myself life is a marathon, not a sprint.
I hope to share more aviation news with you all shortly. I’m also planning on writing a sequel to some of my more popular posts – surprisingly A LOT of people what to know about dating a pilot. Until then, blue skies!
