I’m kinda upset cause I wanna go flying. I haven’t been able to fly for over a week and I’m getting so close to going on solo that I just want to keep on flying.
Yesterday, James and I were supposed to fly, but due to the weather, I wasn’t able to do so. Instead James and I had a ground lesson followed by me taking my pre-solo written test.
I usually only fly Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. However with the weather getting in the way and life for me and my instructor, this last week I had to do a flight on Friday to get one in.
I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday, but I flew on Sunday and had a great time. The majority of the day was spent on ground school (about an hour and a half) with the flying I did practicing landings.
Yesterday I had one of my best flights yet. Not only did my girlfriend Christina come up flying with me, but I was able to do a number of procedures I’ve been practicing and nailed most all of them.
I was not sure how my flight was going to go yesterday after not flying for six days, but I have to say that I was pretty damn proud of myself.
Yesterday was my last flight with Emily (at least for a while) since James is returning this Sunday. I had an excellent time flying with Emily and she gave me a number of good pointers.
Yesterday, my instructor and I focused primarily on just landings. I flew with Emily again today who I found out has been an instructor for a couple years now and currently has ten students as a CFI (Certified Flight Instructor).
