Information Echo

Welcome to Information Echo...formerly "Pilots Licence 101".

This blog chronicles my experiences beginning in the summer of 2004 as a student pilot, aiming to achieve my lifelong goal of obtaining my pilots licence.

Now, having completed my training and achieved my dream, I will continue to share my experiences henceforth.

Join me, won't you?

It Arrived

My official Transport Canada licence arrived yesterday. Asothers have mentioned when they received theirs, it really is a rather nondescript and rather unimpressive piece of paper.

Echoing others, It would be nice if it was some sort of fancy plastic card with a photo - at least it could be used as (rather impressive) personal ID whenever needed. :-)

Oh well, it's the point behind it that counts more so then the presentation, I guess.

The Muskoka flight has not yet happened - Friday is looking like a strong prospect, however.

It's looking as if I might actually end up flying three days in a row - Friday for the Muskoka to Oshawa flight, Saturday with a friend, and Sunday with another friend who wants to give her husband an interesting birthday present.

(To clarify from my original poorly worded version of the above, that's "His wife is paying for his half" of the cost.... Yes, I'm staying within the rules of not being a commercial pilot... :-)

Works for me!

Speaking of Birthdays, mine is tommorow. Flying three days in a row is a good present, no? :-)

What you meant to write is that his wife is paying for his portion of the flight... as a birthday present.
