Holy Moly I passed the first one

This morning I received the happiest of text messages through from my dad, with the news that I he had received the letter with my exam results on and I have actually managed to pass Aircraft General Knowledge and Instruments exam with an 81% mark....... I actually feel sick. Wow I have managed the first hurdle, just another 8 exam sittings to go. We are on our way......

The second phase begins..... Human Performance & Limitations,Air Law & ATC Procedures,Operational Procedures, VFR Communications, Meteorology

The 5 subjects for the second set of exams in March are:

Human Performance & Limitations,
Air Law & ATC Procedures,
Operational Procedures,
VFR Communications,

Of these the difficult ones in my opinion are LAW and Meteorology, the other ones are smaller exams and also subjects I have already done exams in for the Private Pilots license so I have a basic understanding of the subject.
The first one I have started the study for this week is LAW, as its very much about learning the questions and answers and not so much about the theory of it all, just a mass of knowledge to start to take in.
So I am starting with that and when my brain starts to overload I will go into the other subjects and then come back. Time is short for me in this term as the next sitting of the exams is on 16th/17th March, 7 weeks from now......
I have yet to receive the results for the Aircraft General Knowledge but in all honesty I am thinking I will be retaking that one.
The results should be in within a week or so, I'll keep you posted when it finally comes in.

A pretty big week of flying with some centreline hopscotch.....
