Passed Commercial Checkride!

I’m a newly minted commercial pilot!

I did the flight portion of my checkride this morning in the Trinidad.  I flew with the examiner for 2.1 hours, with a stop at Davenport, Iowa.  It’s an incredible feeling to finally reach the goal I have been working on since 2001, when I got my private certificate and started doing cross-countries while training for my instrument rating.  It’s been three years and a lot of hard work.  Next I will immediately begin training to become a flight instructor.  This is a great milestone, and I can hardly believe it’s real.  I’m too tired to write more!
