Hazy and Windy

Just finished up and writing this while still fresh in my memory. Was going to work on actual landings for the first time but it was way too windy. Tom mentioned crab landings in the wind which is not for a first timer.

So we spent the lesson working on turns and keeping altitude in the turns. I need to dial that in better. I’m making good turns but coming out of them in a 300 feet higher or lower than before I started the turn.

It it was a real hot and very hazy day so visibility was not good making it harder to read the horizon. So I had to depend more on reading the instruments to stay level than I normally would.

Everything new seems overwhelming . But I keep saying that what seemed overwhelming last month is not this month. All part of the learning process I guess!
