Yesterday evening, I met up with my instructor at 6:30 to do some ground followed by a flight. The ground was a good session going over a number of topics I need to memorize and work on. After a flight prep, we were off.
The last flight I had was soloing at Troutdale (TTD) on December 13th; two days before my vacation. After finally soloing at Troutdale, rather than continuing to fly, I went on a vacation to Costa Rica. The trip was awesome and not the worst of times to go, but there was some excellent weather here […]
Last year in June was my last solo flight, since then I pretty much quit flying. However, after my restart of my lessons in September, I finally was able to get soloed at a local airport again!
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.
Today I took off from Portland area planning to go on a long flight around Portland airport, but instead, due to Aurora State being IFR conditions, I flew the first leg of my flight and returned.
