The New Pilot PodBlog Ep #23 - My Third Anniversary and a Look Back at 2011



On the third anniversary of receiving my pilot's license, I look back at 2011 to see if the goals that I had set at the end of 2010 were met.

In 2011

I logged time in 2 different aircraft; Tecnam Sierra and of course the SportCruiser

I logged

  • 15 flights (7 less than 2010)
  • 21.4 PIC hours (3.6 less than 2010) and all LSA PIC hours
  • 9.1 XC hours (5.6 more than 2010)
  • Landed at 6 different airports
  • I went over 100 PIC hours
  •  Had my first BFR

So how did I do? Did I meet the goals I set out at the end of 2010 for 2011?

Looking back, 2011 was a mixed year for me. I did get more XC hours but they were mostly from 2 flights to the UCAP meet up in Nashua NH. One we made and the other was aborted due to weather. That being said, they were the 2 longest flights since my long XC. And both were great learning experiences

In 2011 I joined two volunteer organizations. I always wanted to use my pilot’s license to help others so I joined the Civil Air Patrol and Patient AirLift Services. Patient AirLift Services or PALS (http://www.palservices.org/), is an organization that arranges free air transportation based on need to individuals requiring medical care and for other humanitarian purposes.

Overall, 2011was a good year. I continued to fly and meet new friends through aviation and my podcast. Have a listen to see if I met my goals and what my goals are for 2012.


I would like to wish all of my listeners and your families, Happy Holidays and a safe and joyful New Year. 

Blue skies and tailwinds always.
