    Woohoo!

    Got a first time pass on my IRT (Instrument Rating Test) today! For those of you still lost, it's an exam which gives you an instrument rating which means you are qualified to fly under Instrument flight rules (ie without being able to see outside, flying purely off radio navigation aids, the artificial horizon and the like).

    So now off to New Zealand again to do the last 10 flights for my Commercial license, and then the next thing I fly will be a 737 or an A320/319! Exciting times.

    The bad news? I'm missing a friend's stag do to vegas (which I already spent £600 on!!!) because the gits are sending me back out to NZ. Bugger.

    So anyway, that's the latest update in my Journey to the Airlines!

    genius dani... genius... haha

    Cheers chappies... and yeah an aoc sticker in the window of an airbus is certainly a photo waiting to happen!

    Andy - dunno really. 10 more flights (will probably end up taking a few weeks) until I have my CPL, then I'm fully qualified as a commercial pilot. I still have a few more things to do after that (a 3 week course for teaching multi-crew operations in a 737/a320 simulator, and then a type rating on whatever plane I get placed on, which again will take a few weeks... after that I get released to start flying on the line with you unsuspecting gits in tow.
