After a "heart incident" Dec. 2019 I received two stents and in Feb. 2020 my Aortic valve was replaced (to correct a birth defect) at the Ottawa Heart Institute. My Private Pilot Medical was suspended. I resigned myself to not being able to fly again. Feb. 2021 I felt so good I that I passed my pilot medical which Transport Canada placed "Under Review" because of the replacement surgery. Yesterday I received my medical "Unrestricted Class 3" from Transport Canada. It was a long tedious trip back, but for those out there struggling with medical issues I offer my story as encouragement.
Still a couple of the Port Elgin pilot “students” in the area and I live 5 minute from CNL4.
If you make it down here you have a place to stay!
I flew a C172 out of Port Elgin 1977 - 1984. Dick Fenton was the airport manager.
Congrats Bob, I too had a heart incident back in the day and just finished my 750 Cruzer. Hope we can bump into each other on the southern Ontario circuit one day.
Only in Canada you Say? Congratulations and good Flying.
Congratulations Bob, I remember that you helped me out some with pictures on your build 10 years ago. Glad you are back in the air.
Oh No...does that mean you'll be wanting those floats back? LOL! That is some good news Bob - glad for you!
Congratulations Bob - thank you for sharing. I feel like so many people give up after something like this, and you have clearly shown you can keep going! To many more years in the sky!
Congratulations!!! Now you can fly your Piper solo.
Congratulations Bob, Great News!
