I love flying. I got my pilot’s license back in 2000, and had flown nearly 1000 hours between then and the fall of last year.
Things got super busy, then I had the facial discombobulation surgery, and it was spring. Still no flying.
I had to get a new FAA medical exam, and I did that. Then my license lapsed because I had to do my biennial flight review.
I have to make an appointment with the local FAA office (FSDO in pilot speak) to change my name – in person.
I haven’t done it.
I think about it.
I think about how lame it is that I didn’t do it.
Honestly, part of what’s holding me back is that I don’t want to deal with calling my flight instructor and “explaining”. Jack is super cool, and I’m sure it would be fine, but I’m weary of explaining.
I don’t want to walk into the FBO (plane parking place), and then have to explain to them too….
This is SUPER LAME. I need to just deal and go do it.
Yes, I still have challenges.
