First flight into Portland-Hillsboro Airport (HIO) along with information about the days flight and that I get to start soloing between Twin Oaks and Aurora State.
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.
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.
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.
The flight this Thursday was simply…no good. There were no crashes, there were no injuries, there was just a lot of flying that didn’t go to well by me.
Yesterday I accomplished one of the more important aspects of flying…landing!
Yesterday involved a discussion of stability and spin recovery covered in ground school, followed by an introduction and run-through of few different ground reference maneuvers.
