This week it is pilot check flight time. We are certifying a pilot as a trainer who can then get others certified to fly. After each flight the new pilots are amazed at the job that has been done during restoration. So far only minor problems have cropped up. None that have been flight critical. We begin to put procedures in place for the day we start taking passengers. Restoration crew members have gone from restoration to ground support and maintenance crew. Every day, every taxi, and every flight we gain more expertise in the support of our PBJ.
