Today’s flight consisted of a number of landings over at Mulino State Airpark. These landings consisted of the usual: normal, short, and soft field. On top of this however, I got to practice and do a great job at some short approach landings including and a “power-off 180.”

This morning flight was spent around Lenhardt Airpark (7S9) and Mulino State Airport (4S9). Both of these are small airports with the former allowing for grass landings and take offs.

Both flights were amazing and made me realize even more that this stuff is sinking into my […]
