Starting my IR rating

Decided I wanted to get my IR rating and continue my education in aviation.  Bought the Kings IR ground school videos and finished going through all the lessons over the last month or so.  Decided to just schedule my IR written and get that knocked out while it was all still fresh in my mind.  Honestly it’s just one less thing I need to worry about.  Was pretty confident, and ended up getting over 90% on it.

This afternoon I did my first IR Lesson.  Let’s just say it was a humbling experience.  I was so mentally drained by the time we were headed back to the airfield I ended up going around and needed an assist from my CFI.  Not how I really wanted to start, but I understand that I’m learning and that’s why I’m paying my CFI.  (Granted I was in an unfamiliar airplane so I think the deck was a little stacked against me.  Nothing unsafe, just a lot of new things being thrown at me all at once).
