    Just got my replacement PPL certificate. Wow. These new plastic cards look really slick compared to the punch out card stock I had before.

    When did they start doing this?

    Hmmmm... 1972. I don't think my dad was old enough to vote yet... LOL

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Wish I still had my first one. Hated having to surrender it even though it was for an additional rating.

    Did they look the same in 1960 as that one does?

    Thanks for that piece of history ;)

    My first plane was an Aeronca 11AC Chief. I bought it in 1960 with two partners, a Policeman and a Fireman. The Fireman already had his Private license and the other partner and I were working on ours flying a Piper Colt and J3 Cub.

    The license in 1960 was called a blue seal for the seal in the upper right corner. The Fireman's license didn't have the seal. As I understood it sometime before 1960 a student didn't necessarily get any instrument hood time before he got his Private license. There were few Cubs, Taylorcrafts, etc with any instruments. Then when hood time became a requirement for a Private license the FAA put the seal on the license.

    Something interesting back then.
    When a student was signed off for solo cross country he didn't have to fly with an instructor any more if he didn't want to. He could go any place he wanted and pretty much the only restriction was he couldn't carry passengers.

    As students we used to fly into international airports to get a coffee or shoot a couple TO and LDGS.:)

    Wake turbulence was a fairly new unknown thing.
    One day the tower operator at Friendship International Airport (Maryland) cleared me to takeoff, in a Piper Colt, right behind a departing 707. The Colt did everything but turn upside down but I got away with it.
    A couple days later a Bonanza was flipped over and killed everyone aboard taking off behind a 707.
    Some weeks after my incident Flying magazine had a big writeup about wake turbulence.

    This was a nice bird, $1,100.
    I later bought out my other two partners. :)
