:thumbsup: I see you are wearing a Tee shirt....they're much easier to cut the back out of (to hang on the club house wall showing when you soloed)....I guess they are still doing that. Congrats again...Know you are gonna have so much fun with your new hobby.

From the perspective in an airplane as a pilot above, and from the view of an engraver looking through a microscope, the world appears to be as infinitely vast as it is minute!

Not going to lie Sir that video made me nervous as all hell. I fly only when absolutely required, "Props" to you for picking up such an amazing skill. But I think I'll keep my feet on ole terra firma.

way to go on #3 ! a friend has a 172 he has access ( 1/3owner ) to.every now & then it's nice to leave the neighborhood for a couple hours. be careful, you may enjoy flying more than you do engraving

good for you sam! I made it all the way to my first solo and then chickened out. that was back in 1991. now I probably couldn't pass the physical.

Congratulations on the video, would love to see it viewed from behind you, looking forward for perspective. My father flew a 172 in 1961 when he was caught in a massive storm near McLain and Hattisburg, Mississippi, and didn't make it. (Pilot error) Mom always got really nervous when I mentioned I wanted to learn to fly, even many years later. It's a great sport and a way to clear the cobwebs in life. Keep us posted on your progress.

Congratulations, Sam! Nice, smooth air-work, and sweet "chirps" on the runway.

Sam my career for over 30 years was as an aeronautical cartographer for FAA. I made and reviewed the Visual Charts and the Instrument Approach Procedure Charts

Congratulations, Sam! While you're up there would you mind looking around for everybody's photos that used to be stored in the old Cafe system? I asked about those the other day in another thread... ;-)

I wish I could help you, Mitch. With the software upgrade we had several expected glitches. If I could push a button and fix it i would.

so you're saying they probably are lost in the shifting cyber-sands of time? :-(
