  1. Never realized how much I would miss Nashville and the South East in general until I moved to New Mexico.
  2. You’re totally right. Failure isn’t what I should have used to describe it. I am actually about 3 hrs from my PPL but training and weather kept me from finishing. I think a lot of it is nerves about the job itself. Considering I grew up around manned flight, I only knew that community and lifestyle.
  3. I now this probably isn’t the place for this, but I am at a crossroads. I just graduated MQ-9 training and I can’t help but feel like I am not good enough. I find myself asking “what could I have done differently.” I applied for Pilot back in ROTC and had RPA as my #2 choice with CSO. I can’t help but wonder what could I have done differently to have received a pilot slot and it’s starting to have an impact on my happiness and demeanor. My dad and brother are both pilots, so it was instilled in me at a young age that that’s what I should be. Because I haven’t achieved this I have a feeling that I am a disappointment. My family has shown no interest in my training and didn’t even come to my drop night or graduation and my dad is always making jokes about what I am doing. I have a strong will, but it has recently hit me like a ton of bricks and it’s all I’ve been thinking about. This is more of a vent than anything, but does anyone have any strategies or resources that can allow me to be the best RPA driver I can be and stop beating myself up all the time? Thanks!
  4. We had 5 from my class get sent to March and 1 to Syracuse.
