Long Cross Country

Did my long cross country this morning. I flew from Capitol (02C) to Manitowoc (KMTW) to Oshkosh (KOSH) and back to Capitol. Flight really well, with three good landings!

It was unbelievably hazy, which I later learned was SMOKE!

The rest of my training is prep for my final exam!


First Solo Away from the Airport

Flew about 10 miles away from the airport, toured around lake country, and returned. Easy flight, but the first solo away from the airport! I grabbed a selfie when my instructor wasn’t looking! On a side note, I’m getting pretty confident about crosswind landings.



Today Grant (my instructor) and I did a half dozen take offs and landings. Next thing I know, he’s telling me to drop him off at the hanger and tells me the airplane will perform a lot better without him in it! Off I went and did two more SOLO take offs and landings! Not my best landings, but I didn’t bend, break or injure anything or anyone! Not bad…

I’m looking forward to the next part of my training!
