Today was "Day Zero" of the Aviation Officer Basic Course." It consisted of a PT test followed by a series of briefings.
The PT test went better than expected considering my recent excesses in Miami. I scored above ninety percent in each event. My run was slower than usual but, considering that my past times were excellent, my slower run was still a ninety-two percent. I am going to try and get back into better shape over the next six weeks so that I can get back to a perfect score on the run.
The briefings were boring but contained some useful information. Most importantly, we received a full schedule for the next six weeks. That is a change from the usual "need to know" type of schedule we have gotten in the past.
********* I will be graduating from flight school on February 24, 2005 at 1000. ********* This is a Thursday. You are all invited to attend. The Aviation Officer's ball will be the evening of the 23rd.
I am thrilled to be in the last phase of training and to have the end in sight. I am also getting just a little bit anxious about the future. I will continue to keep you all up to date.
