First solo October 31, 2006. (C172R- N9577W) Trick or Treat
Checkride passed on the first try...and the plane that I chose to fly. DPE Ben Carr at CHA class C. March 3, 2007 (C172R- N109PH) Thanks Mr. Carr and a shout-out to Will Hathcock, Ed Lecklitner, Chris Carter and Stan "the man" Kowalchyk for instructing and keeping me safe.
Tango Juliet in a field after an impressive emergency landing by Chris Carter with a student. TJ is still flying out of PDK. My first solo x-country was in this plane about 6 weeks later. So much for bad omens. Always look for oil around the cylinder head during preflight.
