DFW guys, what's "Smitty" doing these days?
I took my instrument ride with him back in '05 and thought I'd heard he retired from DPE role.
I took my Private Pilot check ride with him in 99, but I have no idea what he's doing now. Hopefully he's retired.
He was still doing checkrides back in '09, but I heard he got medically retired not long after that. It was getting to the point where they were having to pour him into the airplane, but people sure loved him!
