The scaling of a peak and the opening of a door to new adventures, hanger stories, and capability. There's much more fun to come. Congrats Drew.

My instructor & I flew 30+ hrs in the last month to get it finished. Week before last I flew everynight. I don't want to see the AOPA statement at the end of the month.

While I dragged mine over a couple years, my last student started from the beginning with me in January 199? and took her ride in July getting an "above average" examiner remark. An accellerated program is the way to go if you can pay for it. Easier to keep motivated and focused over a shorter period and less chance of distractions. I'm hoping that'll work for me with Cozy building.

mine cost somewhere between 3000 - 4000 but that was 10 years ago and fuel was around $2/gallon

i figure at club flying rates my IR will cost between 6-11,000 depending on which planes i can get when (6000 is using our cheapest, a 172M for everything, 11,000 assumes using the 182 for everything)
