Found a local instructor and we're brushing off the dust and rust.
BTW JK... you'll be very proud.
I was very much dreading having to re-learn the E6B. I just knew I'd forgotten everything. But it was time to knuckle down and get back to it. My CFI even had a cross country for me to plan... a real one. We need to fly over to see the examiner. Oh how spoiled we are in Queenstown! I miss having a towered airport with an aeroclub (run by my mates) in my back yard. So nice.
Out comes the rulers and E6B... and... WTF?... hang on... I know how to do this!
I dug up an online flight planner helper site and checked my work... somehow I'd even gotten it right.
