I just purchased this Dakota beauty the day before and planned to fly it back home to NJ on Christmas day. The weather looked good for VFR, which is my current ratings. Rosy and I began flying from Houston (KTME) in the morning with clear skies. However, about 1.5 hours into the flight, I ran into an IMC for a 12 heart-stopping seconds where I couldn't see anything.

What saved me and my honey was the fact that I trained with Captain Doron (best CFII ever) for many hours in real IFR conditions, flying a few times to Alabama and Canada, and the IFR lessons I received while attaining my PPL with Danny from 2bapilot school.

Getting caught in my first IMC without another pilot onboard, however, was different. Fortunately, my training kicked in and we survived this adventure.
