Second Solo

The weather finally cooperated enough to do a second solo. This one, however, was not as eventful as the first. It was kind of.. normal, with the attitude of: “OK, I gotta go do three landings to check it off the list.” Don’t get me wrong, it was still fun!

First, I did three landings with my instructor. They went smoothly. Since it was calm air, the airspeeds were pegged at 80, 70, and 65 for the various flap settings. The third landing was a simulated emergency landing, with a little forward slip needed to get us down.

The solo landings were pretty good too. The first was a little bumpy, but hey since I’m alone, I’m only smacking around myself on those! The next ones were smoother.

Pretty standard.
