I feel like Peter Pan

On second thought perhaps that isn’t such a good analogy. Superman would be more appropriate. The point is I can FLY.

I was informed through my Medical agent in Oklahoma City that The FAA Medical Branch cleared me for takeoff. For the last year the only flying in N847DD has been by my pals, not with me. It’s frustrating taking a back seat and not Pilot in Command. July 1st will be the 120th day since the transplant so a lot has happened very quickly

Incidentally, if you are a pilot and have a medical issue that keep you from flying I can highly recommend Pilot Medical Solutions at www.leftseat.com. They have done a marvelous and very professional job of interfacing with the FAA which on an individual basis could be a process that last months.

In the meantime, we are on the Canadian trip on the Nancy D!

    This is great news on many counts…

    First, we’re all thankful that you are alive and well….the world is a better (and certainly more fun) place with you around. Secondly, a guy like you NEEDS to have the wheel and not be relegated to a “backseat flyer.” Finally, you don’t have to change your name from “flyguy33” to “noflyguy33″…the shorter version is far more preferable.

    Congrats! We celebrate with you.

    Congratulations! What a wonderful feeling it must be, to have so much freedom again. I just saw Vanessa for a few minutes, and she is radiant! She is lucky to have you.
