So this summer I have been staying in Richmond to hopefully complete commercial and CFI training. So far I have been fairly productive. I’ve passed my commercial MEL check ride, and have passed both the FOI and FIA written tests for CFI. I am about to start the flying for the single engine add-on to the commercial certificate soon, and I’m really crossing my fingers that waiting for a DPE will prevent me from meeting all my goals this summer. EKU is getting around sixty new students in the Fall, so if I can get my CFI done, I will have plenty of work as a student employee.
I also signed up to go attend the Dayton Airshow as a VIP guest of PSA Airlines. It was incredible. I saw their operations there, met the President and engineers of Bombardier, and got to get into the cockpits of amazing airplanes including a DC-3. The show was fantastic, and the whole experience really made me consider PSA as a future employer. It’s been a great summer so far, I’d love to round it out with some more temporary airmen certificates. Thanks for reading.
