I took my father-in-law with me today. So Bob decided that we take a pilotage training today — flying from CDW north bound, just outside the New York Bravo airspace, maintain 2500ft, follow the I287 to Tanpanzee Bridge, then go over the hudson river, fly back along the I287 as well. it is definitely heavier with 3rd persons on board, and I felt it.
Before heading to airport, I calculated the W&B, by asking Bob’s weight as well :).
