Yesterday, I had a successful flight from Troutdale to Aurora, to Scappoose, then back home to Troutdale. I had my plan for going the opposite of this plan, but due to incoming clouds, this was the only way this flight was going to be completed.
I have been flying once or so a week around 3pm, but now that daylight savings is no longer in effect, I am going to have to change things up. More than likely I’m going to be flying earlier, though I may take the opportunity to do more night flying and fly later in the day.
Not sure yet. All I do know is that I am close to soloing this flight and at these local airports again. I’ll then be able to get some practice in on flying by myself again. That’ll be sweet!
I’m planning to go on a trip coming up in December around the 15th as an award for finishing my license, this means that I need to start hitting the books and studying up on the extra materials there are to flying so that I’ll be ready for the oral and practical exams I have coming up. Not much longer till I get this license in my hand. Here’s hoping I can cut out my social life enough to make it a reality!
