    I hear that.
    What kinda pisses me off is that we got tested in Starke a few weeks ago and our instructor drew names in alphabetical order, naturally I had to go first. Little did we know, whoever went first was doomed! I failed my pre-trip because we were never taught to build up the air pressure to 125-140 (governer cutout) FIRST thing. I got a 95% on my pre-trip besides that but had to be automatically failed because of it. (Never good to get tested first, especially from a schools first group of students!) What's even more ridiculous is our instructor never went over the handbook once, we just watched pre-trip videos from YouTube all day from all different states...

    The other thing that's funny is 3/7 students passed at that school, but our worst student passed miraculously. A few weeks ago he still couldn't back up straight! Now we have to wait 3 1/2 more weeks to test because of the holidays... I digress, but I'll just be glad when all this is over with and I can go down the road.

    That's where we tested the first go-around. We weren't supposed to really test there, we were waiting on the state to approve our pad for testing, it just recently got approved.
    We're actually from NFCC in Madison, FL. We're the schools first group of students.

    Those guys were cool at Starke though! Is that the guy who's into the RX-7's or is that the military guy? We won't be going back there though, but if we were I'd definitely spread the word for ya!
