Final Defense

Final Defense

It is finally here…my final quarter as a doctoral candidate starts in a little over a week. If all goes well, in 2 months I should complete my final dissertation defense and become Dr. Moon. 

Resumed doctoral program

Posted on 2017/01/03

After a truly hideous 18 months that resulted in many life changes and temporarily leaving my doctoral program, I resumed it on January 3rd, 2017. If all goes well, I will be doing a preliminary defense towards the end of this term, and the final defense the following term, for a summer 2017 graduation.

Seabee & Serey

Been quite some time since I posted here. Today I flew a formation flight over to Lake Hickory with my airpark neighbor ET to check out a location for a seaplane fly-in this October. He has the most beautifully maintained Seabee I have ever seen (on the left). My little Searey is on the right.

Term 12 Complete, only Dissertation Defense remains

Posted on 2015/09/19

Today, on pirate day 2015, I completed the 12th term of my doctoral program. All core classes are complete. I plan to take 1 to 2 more terms to finish polishing up my dissertation, and hopefully defend it by April 2016.

New Hat

New Hat

In memory of the poor buzzard that hit the glider I was flying a week ago, I had a commemorative hat made. Rest in peace little guy. I’m really sorry.

A dream come true….

House and Hangar

House and Hangar



Today a childhood dream came true. I now live in a house on a grass strip airport right beside a lake with my own hangar for my own planes and a boat slip for my own boat.

The end is nigh!

semester 12 Started the final semester of coursework to for my doctorate. I’m finishing up my last elective course (covering virtual commerce systems), completing my data analysis, and concluding my dissertation. If all goes well I will defend after the end of this term, and be Dr. Moon before the end of the year.
