Study Study Study

I studied all day for the PSTAR exam, sorta like a learner licence for Pilots, and went from virtually zero to this:
Which makes me pretty stoked. The PSTAR is a 50 question exam, with all the questions pulled from a 191 question pool, and you can get up to 5 wrong and still pass. Interestingly, Transport Canada gives you acess to all 191 questions, and several sites have popped up that give you interactive exams with results right away. I like this one the best: Test is on Wednesday :)

There is an art, or rather a knack to flying, it involves being able to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

A change of topic for 7 weeks

I am a Canadian air cadet, and I have been fortunate enough to reicieve the honour of attending a summer course put on by the cadet program called the power pilot scholarship course, which is in escence a 7 week very intensive flight school, that if I am successful in completing I will recieve a Transport Canada Private Pilot's licence. This licence allows me to fly single engined propeller driven aircraft around as the sole pilot and also allows me to take passengers up into the air. The course takes place a fairly long way away from home, and as such I will not be working on robots or anything other than the course for the next 7 weeks. any posts you will see on this blog in those next weeks will likely pertain almost exclusively to flying and that sort of thing. I have no idea if anyone even reads my blog consistantly, but I just thought Id lett you know if you do. I leave for camp on Saturday.
