Memories of Check-rides, Derby Days and Joy of Flying!

May is always memorable. I got my PPL . Three years later I got my Instrument rating.

“I hope we will be done by 3:00 pm, ” said Wanda, “I wan’t to watch the Kentucky Derby”

“I hope so too,” thought I. “With positive results.” For it was the day of my PPL check-ride and I wanted to get home without a pink slip!

It was also Derby Day.

And getting home to watch the race would be good too… I did make it home in time to catch the race that day.

That was 19 years ago, today!
