While getting ready for my commercial checkride I was practicing intensively with daily flights of at least a couple of hours. Due to the time constraints and availability of school aircraft, I was flying during the same hours of the day so I got to work with the same Boston approach controller.
Once on a particularly busy day I got, “Sir, could you please move out of my airspace, I have intense arrivals to Boston Logan.”
I respectfully obliged.
On the day of the exam my examiner announced to Boston approach that it was a checkride and we proceeded with the routine. When we finished the following exchange occurred:
Boston Approach: “Piper 827ND, did your student pass?”
My Examiner: “Yes. Why?”
Boston Approach: “Thank you for passing him so he no longer clutters my airspace!”Artem Grush Boston, MA
