Catch up: Lessons 1-11 | 03/07/15 – 05/31/15

I have neither the time nor the memory to go into more detail about each of my first eleven lessons, so here are the notes that are in my logbook so you can get a general sense as to what I have been doing:

Lesson 11 (5/31/15): C-172m (N811JD) - Radio communication, traffic pattern, soft field takeoffs and landings, simulated engine failure, short field takeoffs and landings.   11 day Landings, 1.4 hours flight training/total flight time SEL.

Lesson 10 (5/24/15): C-172m (N811JD) – Normal crosswind takeoffs and landings, VOR interception + tracking, IFR [VOR tracking], recovery from unusual attitudes.   8 day landings, 2 hours flight training/total flight time SEL, 0.4 hours simulated instrument.   I recorded some video from the flight:

Lesson 9 (5/17/15): C-172m (N811JD) – Normal takeoffs and landings, short field takeoffs and landings, soft field takeoffs, simulated engine failures, traffic pattern, no tower field operations, no flap landings.   11 day landings, 1.9 hours flight training/total flight time SEL.

Lesson 8 (4/26/15): C-172m (N811JD) – Soft field takeoffs, Normal and crosswind takeoffs and landings, radio communication, traffic pattern.   8 day landings, 1.1 hours flight training/total flight time SEL.

Lesson 7 (4/19/15): C-172m (N811JD) – Crosswind takeoff and landing, ground reference maneuvers; turns around a point, rectangular pattern, s-turns across a road.   1 day landing, 1.2 hours flight instruction/total flight time SEL.

Lesson 6 (4/12/15): C-172m (N811JD) – Traffic pattern, crosswind takeoffs and landings, soft field takeoffs, simulated engine failure.   11 day landings, 1.3 hours flight instruction/total flight time SEL.

Lesson 5 (4/3/15): C-172m (N811JD) – Normal takeoffs and landings, traffic pattern, radio communication.   12 day landings, 1.4 hours flight instruction/total flight time SEL.
