Same here, not trying to sound cocky either. I consider myself lucky to have a job instructing right now, and as long as we all stick to our goals and do the right thing, it will work out in the long run. And yes, the Coast Guard is still at PIE, along with a few airlines, and some cargo stuff going on. Great experience for students and instructors. Still have not gotten that "dogfight" in the pattern feeling that was so unique about Vero. Good luck to all, dont get discouraged, we all have some dues to pay.
