Today was a huge achievement. After much preparation I finally flew my long distance cross country flight.

It’d been quite some time since I’d flown to McMinnville and this flight I was finally able to visit again.
It had been over a week since my last flight where I took time to practice soft/short field landings/departures. Today I did an unexpected solo flight as my instructor was preoccupied.
The flight for today was quite short. Just a half hour, but in that time I was able to get four landings in staying in the pattern. I haven’t talked much about Marginal VFR on here, so I figure I’ll give you a brief rundown. Marginal VFR is between 3 and 5miles visibility and between […]
Okay – the wind wasn’t this strong – but close to it! The wind was so strong during this flight that it made landings very difficult and a lot of fun. I had to do a lot of crabbing into the wind to get angled correctly for flying around the pattern. Something that came quite […]
