One Step At a Time

OK, so I have had some difficulties the past few months, primarily financial. Which of course leads to challenges in most other areas as well, in this case putting a severe crimp on my flying. I did take the opportunity to begin doing lots of time in our FTD or flight training device, otherwise known as a simulator, so I haven't been a total slug.

I won't belabor the point about my troubles because I am fully aware that there are a great many people besides myself who are being financially hurt and stressed out by the current state of the economy, and the reality is that I am better off than many of them.

For which I am most sincerely grateful.

And as they usually do, things have taken a turn for the better and I am once again my positive and optimistic self. It also means I'll be ratcheting up my aviation activities, the most immediate goal of which is to take the Instrument Instructor and Instrument Ground Instructor written exams. Passing those, in addition to the exams I've already passed, will permit me to obtain certification as an Instrument Ground Instructor, which will allow me to sign off on student logbooks for simulator time.

That means I can then start earning some income doing what I really want to be doing - aviation.


It won't be much to begin with, but as they say, every journey begins with a single step. And then another, and another.

One foot in front of the other.

One step at a time.
