I just got home from training. My training sim went fine, and then yesterday, I successfully passed my 2 hour oral and 4 hour simulator check ride. This was hopefully my last time in a simulator, and my last check ride. If so, it was also my best! Usually, just surviving all the problems presented is considered a good job. This time, I aced all the challenges, and greased all the landings, which in the simulator is pretty special. There are times when that special prayer works… DONE!
I am not a smoker. However…on a given special occasion, I have been known to enjoy a cigar and a Scotch. This is that moment!
