On another very windy Oklahoma Saturday, I took to the blue, cloudless sky in my little Cessna 172 but this time I was carrying an FAA Examiner for my final check ride. After lots of study and practice it was time. The ATIS indicated that the surface winds were 24 knots, gusting to 33, and the winds aloft (at 3000+) were 45-52. The rising heat made for a bumpy ride but after demonstrating all the required manuvers completing 5 landings, including a power-off glide from 4000 feet up, I finally did it! Proof you need? Here it is my temporary Private Pilot Certificate! Anyone want to go fly? Pixie Dust optional!
