In reply to: The wait was indeed difficult (and I questioned my sanity in dropping $15K into the local Fedex box outside of Safeway, which I still bow to whenever I go past.) Somewhere I have a thick file of glossies and magazine articles, as that's all there was to look at.

In reply to:$15K for a few brochures and magazine articles? Those must have been printed on some really special glossy paper. I canÂ’t even imagine what it must have felt like to finally takeoff in your own Cirrus after waiting for so long!
In reply to:The first solo flight reminded me of my first-ever solo in a 150; a definite feeling of "am I really doing this?" Let's just say that it had been rehearsed many times. ;-)
