Hello faithful readers!

I'm prepping this week's Dispatch while I wait for a first night flight lesson with one of my students. At this time of the year (and in this latitude), it's a bit of a hassle to get in the required night flying hours with civil twilight ending around 9pm. Maybe you night owls stay up later than me, but that's about when I like to be in bed turning out the lights! If you live in Upper Peninsula Michigan or Maine or Alaska, I have to think that if you're working on your PPL in July, and your night hours aren't done, you're just going to have to wait a few months.

We continue to be joined by more readers each week, which is awesome. I'm always pleased to see that there are people out there interested in being more knowledgeable than the minimum required to get through a BFR. If you're enjoying the Dispatch, it'd mean a lot to me if you'd pass it along to a friend who you think would also enjoy it.

Time for me to head out into the darkness. Fly safe!
