Summary: "Your dragons will be approaching full size" D'fyd began. "And this is the last time I will deliver this little speech to you-- bronzes will reach Approx 35-38 ft, Browns 30-35ft, Blues 25-30ft and Greens 20-25 ft. In this section aside from the normal drills and classes there is one principle difference. You will be flying into Fall with the Weyrlings wings, doing some limited flaming of thread and refueling firestone into the thick of the action. Now THIS is the most dangerous time. I cannot stress this enough. Many weyrlings all over Pern are lost at this stage but you have to face Thread at some point. Before you do we will prepare you as best we can, but for your own sake, the sake of your dragon and wingmates...review all the information we have taught you and be careful! After that, if you pass your end exams and test you will graduate and be assigned to the Weyrling wing or be tapped by a Wingleader for his wing...and you will finally be a FULL dragonrider, with the duties and privileges associated with the rank."
