    It’s been a long time since I updated this blog. Over the summer, I obtained my VFR Private Pilot’s Certificate. I’ve managed to put about 50 hours on my logbook so far and generally fly around the St Louis area under the class Bravo, especially when I take people on arch tours; one of my favorite routes to fly. It’s really neat being able to show passengers what the difference between a highly urban setting and a highly rural setting look like from the air, up close at only 1,500ft.

    The very first day, after my first flight lesson

    My very first solo, 14 hours of flight later

    ...35 days after starting, I earned my VFR Private Pilot's Certificate.

    Of course, after getting the cert, it was time to share my new hobby with others…

    Took my friend Nick, who came all the way from Western Australia on an arch tour

    I took my roommate, Peter, for his first ride in a small airplane.

    This past week, I was in San Jose, California competing at the Human Powered Vehicle Challenge with the MS&T HPV team. We placed 3rd overall out of 50 teams.
