Today we worked only on take offs and landings. when I started learning how to fly back in March, landing an airplane seemed a lifetime away. Now, three months later, pitching for airspeed, lowering flaps, keeping the nose up, are all terms that actually make sense.
Now that I have done it a few times, I need to work on a few things. First, every time I let the flaps down the plane wants to go up. That seems like something I will get right next time. My biggest issue is definitely finding the correct spot to raise up the nose at landing without getting it back up in the air so I bounce off the runway. There is defintitely a specific spot and I have to tweek it.
Today was fun. I look forward to every lesson as I am really embracing flying. Some lessons are challenging, some harder than others… Today was exciting and a lot of fun!
