It has been a long year around here for many reasons.  Events and circumstances over the past six months and managed to keep my flying to only a handful of hours.  In April I reached a point in my Instrument flight training where it was required of me to complete (and pass) the FAA written  examination for the instrument rating before I could progress on to the next stage of flight training.  Well, that took six more months.

Today the written test was successfully completed.  Now, as soon as the winds calm (Super Storm Sandy), we will get back on the flight schedule and complete this rating.
