Newbie, 1st post.

Started flying August, check ride 10/30 & first back country (trainer strip) Lake George - mud strip yesterday!

It has been a fun adventure, my CFI was with me yesterday. He is going to keep teaching me through this next phase.

Welcome aboard. Every flight is a golden opportunity to learn at least something.

Thanks!

Pretty stoked. Already pulled lots of info from this site, sure there will be tons more. As with everything, you are always learning.

Like most, it has been a dream of mine for ever. Glad to finally get there.

I am based in Girdwood. If you see me out and about come say hi.

Dan

My wife and I took a ride in a Robinson R44 with Alpine Air Alaska out of Girdwood in 2008. We toured the Prince William Sound area and landed on a basalt rock in front of one of the calving glaciers. I probably could not have landed my Maule there. :D

Congratulations

The Maule will take you to the coolest places.

As they say, "You now have a license to learn."
