So, its time for an update. I've been around the block some since I last posted anything. lets see... last semester I got to fly and solo on a T-52 (USAF Diamond DA-40), so I can add that to my list of planes flown.
I also had my name on a plane!
Then I started my last semester of undergrad stuff by briefing my research on a regional competition and got second place
And then I got some other trips, got to go to the Navy International Ball at Annapolis
and then I went to Wright Patterson AFB to brief some more guys and stop by the USAF museum
And then, finally, a month ago, I got to graduate as an officer
and of course, I had to celebrate
So now I have a bit more time for a while, since I show up next week at the Guatemalan Air Force where I get to "learn" how to be an officer all over again for the third time, and I'll be at the Guatemalan military academy for 6 months while I do this (without getting paid for those 6 months mind you), and then hopefully learn how to be a military pilot while I try to get my civilian ticket and fly on the weekends as much as I can on my savings... all in all, life's about to get interesting, but hopefully it won't be as hectic as the undergrad student's life I just finished...
