James called tonight to say that he passed his check ride (final test flight over a particular block of instruction, i.e. Instruments) today! This means just one more check ride to finish out this section of training! Yea!!!
Now, this opens up a whole new area of prayer as he will begin formation flying. In the next 10 days he will learn how to fly within 10 feet of another aircraft and take his solo flight doing that very thing! After reading one of the other pilot's blog and finding out just how "exciting" (*scary*) it can be when one flys within 3 feet rather than 10 feet, this Momma is definitely calling all prayer warriors to pray for protection, as well as for skill and ability to do what will be required. Thank you!
Tomorrow (Wednesday) will be a loooonnnng day as he will be 'triple turning', which means James will have 3 flights. He will be very tired tomorrow.
I gratefully lift up my praises for His faithfulness in sustaining, protecting, and strengthening our son as he goes about his flying each day! He truly is the power under our son's wings!
