Commercial Pilot!

I neglected to post this earlier.  On Wednesday, 7/10/2015, I passed the commercial pilot practical test.  I can get paid now!

Then on Saturday, Wayne let me fly N18RB for 1.3 hours.  We flew to T82 for lunch.  That is a sweet airplane.  Extremely smooth, fast, powerful.  We were routinely doing 160 knots, that with the power pulled way back. This Bonanza has a few quirks, but it's very easy to fly, easier than the Arrow which has fairly heavy elevator forces and doesn't trim up as nicely.

I'm thinking I need to find a Bonanza partnership....
