I would love to hear the just barely part. It might help myself and others.

I have heard that the pass rate is up around 95 percent on the private pilot checkride. That does not mean that some people don't take two or more tries, but the fact is that if your instructor signed you off, it means he is confident you are a capable pilot. About the only way to fail a checkride is to not go back and try again.

Congratulations! The check ride seems like a lifetime away for me.

Are you already a member of DCPilots? also, if you are flying out of JYO, we have a list there as well as a monthly meeting of the "Friends of Leesburg Airport" at a convivial local restaurant.
