Welcome! I created Checkride or Bust to help fill the void of general aviation blogs out there today. On this site, you’ll find flying adventures and videos, gear and airplane reviews, and training notes.
So, who am I?
I’m a CFI, aircraft owner, and instrument-rated commercial pilot based out of Tipton, MD (KFME) and Frederick, MD (KFDK). When I was a student pilot, I found a lot of motivation from reading stories of others’ $100 Hamburgers, watching flying videos, and hearing about the challenges I’d get to take on once I got my PPL. That’s what I’m trying to provide here with Checkride or Bust.
And by all means, if you’re a pilot in the area, drop me a line!
