Kathleen, Dan, and Sean all arrived late Wednesday night, and everyone was ready for action on Thursday morning.  

First, Jesse took us to the field where the student pilots practice their maneuvers.  As you can see, it was still cold.  In fact, it was cold during our entire time in Pensacola.  Sean and Scott seemed to be practicing their Civil War faces, Jesse is lecturing and Dan and Kathleen just seemed pleased with the whole situation.
Thursday afternoon was the Soft Patch Ceremony.  The Velcro patches were distributed in an informal ritual that gave the instructors an opportunity to tell funny stories about the students and the students had an opportunity to thank the instructors for keeping them alive during their first few times in the air.
