Thank you to everyone at AeroDynamic Aviation for your instruction, guidance, and support throughout my Instrument training!

A special thank you to Dick Chang, who patiently worked through my altitude deviations,  incomplete procedures, and messy DME arcs to get my skills up to standards.  Your time and energy throughout all of my training is much appreciated!
