Foiled!

Lesson canceled again due to weather. I think this is a record for the number of cancellations in a row since I started training.

Good news is that I wrote the PSTAR on Sunday and received a perfect mark. With that out of the way, I’m ready to go Solo.. just a few more lessons. I wont be able to fly this weekend and all next week as I will be on vacation in Cuba. I’ll be flying on Sunwing for the first time. A friend of mine says a lot of Ex-JetsGo employees now work there. Their fleet consists of a 747-800 in a 3 by 3 seating configuration…. Prime seats are in row 15 and 16, and seats 2D,2E,2F. You can pre-book these seats for an extra charge of $25 each way!

If you would like to know the optimal seating for a specific airline/aircraft, check out Seat Guru.

I originally had a lesson booked tomorrow at 8am. I changed that to 5pm in an attempt to ensure that it wont get canceled because of poor weather. All the weather associated with the cold front that passed through today will be gone and I’ll be enjoying balmy 6°C weather 3000 feet in the air (at least, that’s the plan).

It may be premature, but I’m going to start studying for the private pilot written test. I have a bank of over 900 questions that I can use to test my knowledge.

    Where’d you get this bank of questions from? I have some myself, just want to see if your getting them from a different source?

    Are you sure you are on a 747-800 ?? I guess it could be a 737-800 since you mentioned 3 by 3 configuraion.. 747-800 is still under development!
