Well... at least it's online! At the speed of government the online Airman Certificate lookup shows my Flight Instructor Certificate. It only took 6 weeks. While that's longer than I like it's certainly quicker than I've seen other parts of government work. I'll have to keep my eyes open for the actual hard card certificate in the mail.
I'm still really enjoying instructing. I completed my first complex endorsement training today and endorsed the pilot's log book. Then I turned around and did a ground and flight lesson for my private student. He is doing extremely well.
Yep, fun fun. Tiring but rewarding. I didn't even mind missing part of the Broncos game to do it!
