Flight Lessons 29-34: I’m Back!


It’s been more than 2.5 months since my last post.  A lot has happened since then.  I’ve moved from NJ to NYC for a new career opportunity.  Although I’ve been flying during this transition, it has been a lot less often and I no longer can fly during the weekdays.  I’m now one of Tom’s weekend students and getting on his schedule takes at least two weeks of planning ahead.

Due to new time constraints, I have decided to take this blog in a new direction.  I don’t have the time to provide in depth analysis of each flight lesson anymore.  What I’ll do is use this more as an electronic logbook.  However, if something happens that is interesting enough to warrant a retelling, I’ll do it.

I still haven’t soloed due to the weather.  Hopefully one of these days it’ll cooperate and I’ll get that milestone finally completed.
