    A C-172XP with floats I'm looking at says its IFR certified. Can a seaplane actually fly in IMC? I don't get it? On resumes it would say Instrument ASEL. Is there such thing as Instrument ASES?

My question is, with the complex endorsement here, does...

    Help me, I'm thinking of quitting

    I'm a student pilot who has his checkride schedule for next week. Now I'm thinking of calling the whole thing off and quitting flying. Until a few months ago, my dream was to become an airline pilot. However my parents were strongly against it. My dad's argument was that with the education I'm...
