Today’s lesson was a quick trip up to Sussex Airport to do a VOR-A approach. We did a hold on the way there, but had to restart it because of other traffic nearby.
It was really quiet on the radio on our way out of Caldwell and it was exactly the opposite on our way back in. There were a couple of airplanes in the pattern and others coming in to land. We stuck to a visual approach and had to do a 360 for separation.
Tom and I came up with the idea to get an exhaust smoker in the plane to be more visible to other planes. Hmm.. we’ll see..
