    The tension on the Cessna 150/152 Club forum was palpable across the entire USA/Canada and the world till Amy called in to say she had passed. Way to go Amy!

  5. Having had my son as my primary instructor this past year, along with Windsong Aviation to finish me out for PPL/VFR, and also recently passing checkride, I would say KUDOS to Amy for passing. So many times we are cautioned, scared, overwhelmed by ‘know it all’ longer experienced pilots as PPL students and as new licensed pilots that we forget to ‘attaboy’ the accomplishments and the sheer exhilaration of flying trained well. Being 56, having a 23 year old single and multi engine instructor son, I just say I wish I had gotten started much earlier in life. We need to HURRAH all the properly trained younger generation of pilots we can, and be building the next generation of GA pilots and/or commercial pilots we need and want in our airspaces. Local EAA chapters have been my best organized source for encouragement, and suggest Amy find her local one and get involved.
