Borrowing from the other thread, I finally have my ride scheduled. I need a new 61.39 endorsement, but I should have that on Monday. My oral is on 12/29 and the flight test 1/8. I am using a DPE in VT and I can't believe this might finally be over. Assuming I pass and I did not just jinx myself. I have practiced teaching some of the material to my wife, my cat and myself in the car. I sound like an idiot, but I hope I come across better in my exam. This has been an incredibly frustrating, rewarding and humbling experience. I can't imagine that if all goes well, I will be a cfi in a few weeks.
