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.
Flight number two after getting back into things. The flight today started pretty smooth with a great flight prep, and take-off, however I realized pretty soon after that I was quite rusty.

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

Yesterday, after canceling a flight on Monday, I was able to go flying and boy was it beautiful. I didn’t expect to go flying since the fog was out in Portland. Thankfully, as I drove to Twin Oaks, the skies got pretty clear around the airport. After prepping the plane and talking with Rick, we […]
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.
