PPL Written Exam – Take 2
I didn’t go flying today, but instead, I’m writing about my second time taking my Private Pilot Aeronautical Written Exam. The first time was almost two years ago, which means, that I had to take it over as I needed to finish my practical exam before 24 calendar months after I finished my written. That didn’t happen, so here I am today.
Though I passed just fine (all you need is a 70%), I didn’t do as well as the first time. Of the 7 questions I missed, a few of them were me not paying attention to the small details like the scale used for the given charts.
Oh well, an 88% is just fine with me. Really, I just needed to give myself the extension needed to get my license wrapped up. Though it didn’t expire until the end of the month, I’m leaving town this upcoming weekend until entering September, so finishing things up wasn’t going to happen before August 31st.
Now that I’ve got this out of the way, all I have to do next is practice flying, work on my verbal testing, and go take my practical. If all goes well, Steve and I are looking at me finishing up by the end of next month.
