200 + hrs

By Matt | September 24, 2009

Well once again it has been over a month since my last posting. Hopefully this posting will update everyone on my flying adventure.First off, I finally hit 200 hrs!! This is a huge milestone for someone working towards their CPL. I have my 100 PIC time already and now I’m just working  towards my advanced dual and solo time. I’m planning on doing my cross-country flight (300 NM radius) within the first 2 weeks of October. My planned route is to head east just past Montreal, Quebec. I haven’t done any flight planning yet, but I will update once it is done.I have been doing a great amount of float flying over the last month. A few trips I took were to: Britt (On the Magnetawan river) My wife and I landed and docked at St.Amant’s Waterfront Inn, then we headed to Parry Sound Harbour (Georgian Bay Airways) which had great service and delicious ice cream, and on another flight with a friend we headed to Henry’s Fish & Chips on Sans Souci Island which is only accessible by boat or float plane. The fresh pickerel was so good I took some home with me.I also started online CPL ground school through The course seems very organized and easy to use. There are a ton of videos of in class sessions and after each video there is a quiz to test you on your listening skills. If you don’t have time to make it to a flight school for in class training then I highly recommend taking this course through gallery has been updated so check it out!
