I sloped out of work a little early and met an FAA Flight Instructor Examiner at Lincoln, where we went through a list of exercises that the CAA want me to go through for a restricted 2nd class medical. We then went over to the hangar, where he watched me preflight the plane, then we went out for about 45 minutes including 3 practice engine failures, and 3 complete landings. It was a hot old day, and the density altitude was just crazy, meaning the plane struggled to climb with both of us in it, but we managed to get all of the exercises crossed off, and the forms filled in. When I got home, I scanned and emailed them to the CAA, so I'm hoping for the medical to be sorted out before too long.
