– The Coast Guard series did not get seen by many

Without a doubt, this one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had, and it was an honour to get the opportunity to share it. We put everything we had into this production, and I consider it some of our best work…  It had an amazing 99.5% liked ratio, great retention, and many viewers commented to say they were as surprised as I was that it didn’t perform well on YouTube.  

It was the biggest heartbreaker of my Youtube career.

– Multi-Engine Rating accomplished!

(I by no means aced the test, but I scored perfectly on the most important section dealing with over an engine failure after take off / during a go around)

Was majorly stressed about prepping for my first REAL flight test in over 15 years.

Preparing for the multi engine flight test after so many years no having had to face an actual flight test, was a struggle – But nothing beats the feeling of pulling it off – onward to IFR.  Gulp!

 

– Landed a DC3 (on the purple dot at Osh!)
