Well, Claudia pushed through this year and gained her IFR certification. What an achievement! She worked super hard and got ‘er done! 205JN also performed well through the entire process – she’s a champ of an aircraft. She got a new (overhauled) prop and VG’s (vortex generators) this year and is flying better than ever.
I’ve cut back a bit on the flying since Claudia was concentrating on the IFR cert but I did get in some Citabria hours this year. I got a basic aerobatic certification last year and got some practice in this year. The Citabria is a kick in the pants – especially for aerobatic maneuvers. I’m keeping it simple and sticking to loops and rolls for now.
