After much preparation learning to fly, I am finally going to go try to fly solo!
Yesterday, I finally flew again after over a week and a half without roaming the skies. Boy, was it good to flight or what! The flight was short and sweet with, nothing more than landings, but it sure was fun.
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.
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.
Unlike my flight last Thursday, yesterday’s flight was fantastic. Even though I didn’t land as perfect as I would have liked, I did have a better experience learning how to land better and was quite happy with my pattern work.
Flying through clouds is something that I’ll want to experience some day, but for now, I’m just going to stay clear of them clouds and instead enjoy the experience of my Foggles!
