Where did you do your MEP and what in? You might very well be mad but you're an inspiration to me :-)

I hated my multi course decades ago, awful instructor, wouldn't let me fly the damn thing on two engines for even a minute, it always seemed. I remember the day Bournemouth got an emergency and put us on a level radar heading for about 10 minutes to keep us as a known quantity whilst they dealt with the other aircraft, best part of the course, I was actually allowed to fly on two engines and settle to enjoy it.

This may become useful info once we know more about the other 364 days

I’ve got 3 of the CBIR exams next week. I’m too bloody old for this learning lark!

And I’m a slip of a lad being only 60

Your getting them done a lot faster than me then. Well done. I’ve passed 5 as well. Got gnav and rnav booked for Jan. only got about 4 weeks in between with time to spare to learn. Not feeling over confident but will give it a good go.
