Just a short update, since there has been no flying:
After speaking with Chris yesterday, it looks like I won't be flying tonight or tomorrow either: the runway at Oxford is getting patched up. Apparently this happens twice a year: once before winter and once after. Anyway, it's going to be two days before I can fly again.
In the meantime, I did schedule my check ride with Royal Griffin (an aside note: really cool name) for my 22nd birthday at 9am. So if all goes well, I'll be a private pilot on September 11th, roughly 10 months after I started training with Chris.
That's it for now. More updates once I get another chance to fly, which will be Wed or Thurs. Until then!
