The drive up to the Raleigh area yesterday went well. The weather was decent enough to get some good full-touchdown autorotation training in this morning. The checkride oral exam and flight test all went very smoothly and I'm now a Certified Helicopter Flight Instructor!
A nice thing about this is that in the process, my airplane flight instructor license, which I let expire several years ago, is now reinstated and current. With a little recurrent training I can get back into that as well, if needed.
The trip home was good and it's nice to be back with the family. Carrie's finding that single parenting is a mite bit harder than it was a few months ago, given her energy level.
Again, I appreciate so much all your thoughts and prayers. The process went smoother than I expected it to.
