Got her pilots license today. Three months 55 hours total flight time. Got a 90 on the written and knocked out her six hour check ride today.
She kicked ass. Smokin job!

i’ve seen so many friends that get partway in and just drop the ball. She just knocked it out

This thread title could have gone so many ways. Congrats to her on the wings that's rad. Question, what does it cost ballpark to make that happen? For your daughter is this just for recreation or thinking commercial or private pilot career?

Congrats to her! That's a whole lota work!!! 🍾

Is she going for a commercial job someday? Or is this just so dad doesn't have to be at the controls all the time from now on??

My nephew is a commercial pilot. Took him forever, but so worth it. 👍

Hey Bully, is she gonna do something professional with her license and continue into commercial or something? Being female and soloing so young and getting into the game young, man, her future could be VERY bright. Either get a degree and go into the Naval academy and be the rare female fighter pilot or move directly into private sector, get into private jet piloting or even large commercial piloting (can you say UPS 1/4 mil a year$$$$$$$!?)
