Today, December 11th, I took the practical test for my CFI Glider add-on rating...and PASSED. I encourage you all to think about upgrading your ratings and/or badges. It was a lot of fun studying and learning all the "stuff" you need to know to teach the students! I've been instructing power planes since 1972 so this has been on the "to do" list for quite some time. It's finally DONE!
A special thanks to Bob Bell, CFI for getting me ready for the ride. Also to the guys at the field today (Bob, Hal, Allen, Eric and tow pilot Joey Small) who helped us move the glider around and give us a little priority to get all the flights in and get Joe Scarcella, DPE on his way home before it got dark. It has been a very enjoyable ride for me and I'd be happy tell you all about it! Now it is time for a nap!
