Piloting

We both started our pilot training in 2001, but after the Sepember 11th attacks we both were forced to take about a month off, and although we flew some over that winter, when we got our kit Velocity in the spring of 2002 I essentially stopped flying until after the kit was built. Elizabeth kept flying so she'd be ready to test fly the Velocity. She did that (issued 14 September 2010), and I finished my training after the Velocity was basically a solid flying platform, getting my certificate (Part 61 Private Pilot, Single Engine Land) in 27 January 2013, my complex (27 April 2013) in Lebanon's Arrow and high performance endorsements (29 March 2013) at Sporty's in their G1000 182 Cessna, and my sUAS (Par 107 commercial drone) on 15 August 2020. I received my Velocity factory type endorsement on 16 April 2014. I was also awarded the Repairman Certificate for our Velocity on 13 July 2007. I also have 1 hour of turbo prop instruction in the Legend from 24 September 2016.

My flight career started the same time as Elizabeth's in the summer of 2001, and with a month-long interuption by the attacks of 9/11/01. I did solo and flew a bit more into 2002, but as we headed off to [ Head Start] and started buying airplane parts it became clear that I would not be able to build the kit and finish my flight training.

So, we decided to get Elizabeth fully qualified while I built. When the airplane was done in 2007 she started doing the test flying, and I kept fixing the myriad of things that needed to be tweaked, and then we had our incident. I then had to fix that damage, and we went ahead and painted and installed an interior (and upgraded the instrument panel and electric), and long story short (I know - too late!) I didn't get back to finishing my license until 2011.
