If I wasn't so sick of school...

I'd go to flight training tomorrow!

I had my OAP today, and while I can't remember what the A stands for, I did have a wonderful time. Except for the minor little thing of not actually seeing a patient transport. Boo for that. I did, however, get to go on two flights: one was an IPC (Instrument Proficiency Certification), and the other was a medevac call that got cancelled. So, I got to fly twice and it was fantastic. I'm hooked!

I wish I had gotten some pictures to share, but since I didn't get to do a patient lift, I'm definitely going back again. I'll get the pictures next time. All of the troopers were so wonderful, and they were great about showing me what and where everything was. I was even able to bum a headset and wear it during the flights, so I was able to talk back and forth with them.

In all, I wish I had gotten to see a lift, since that was the whole purpose of the OAP. But in any case, I still had a lot of fun, and I learned that the state police like to use a lot of abbreviations. Today was OSF! (oh, so fun!)

Sounds fun, but gravity is not my best friend in the world, so I probably wouldn't tempt incurring it's wrath by trying to fly...
