Everything went well, and the weather was beautiful (besides the heat). Flight was from GMU to AHN to GRD and back. The only problem I had was after departing AHN when I tried to call FS I couldn't get through on the frequency I had written down. I got back on with Atlanta Center and got a different frequency from another pilot. Tried that one, and no luck. Called Center back again and asked them to relay to close my 1st flight plan, and open the new one. They were very helpful to say the least. Turns out that FS could hear me but I couldn't hear them. And yes, I did check volume and squelch. I didn't talk to my CFI about it when I got back since he was gone, so I might have been missing something. I guess I could say that if that was my biggest problem, then it went well. 3 hours of dual prep, and I should be close to taking my check ride (I'm in a 141 program). Wish me luck.
