Today my licence arrived in the mail. The stamp makes it official, what a great feeling!
Last week I went to the flight school to complete the paper work with the instructor. He was not there the day I took the test, so we had a cup of coffee together last week and got the application for the licence ready.
And since I was there anyway, I took my new powers for a spin. Without the physical licence, the instructor had to write a flight plan for me and sign that he was sending me.
I went on the short hop over to Eggersdorf. I had done that trip numerous times before and it was a good first trip as a new pilot.
