I hope this doesn't sound patronizing, but I'm so proud of you for persevering. You've gone from bailing on your first solo trip because you were a little freaked out to official forum badass!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I’m not sure what to say other than that everyone’s support, encouragement and advice has been and always will be much appreciated.

Congrats on passing the exam, nice that it's already opened new opportunities. I also assume that doing the instructor work would mean more cheap/free flight hours for you?

The flight school is so impressed with me as a student that they've offered me a job as a ground instructor starting ASAP. The only pre-requisite is some self study and a written test talking about human behavior and psychology. The starting pay is $25/hr and will be bumped up to $30 if they like what I'm doing. It also would likely entail an employee rate on airplane rentals which would drop costs about 25%. The decision to pursue this route seems to already be paying dividends.
New world record for finding a way to get paid to do the thing you were willing to pay for. Nice work.
