Today Dave and I did some more pre solo work, as I didn’t do too well on the stage check. It had been nearly two months before I last flew on the day of the stage check, so naturally I wasn’t at my best. Today, Dave and I went through all the maneuvers to reinforce my knowledge, and it helped tremendously. I learned some tricks to make my maneuvers better, and overall got to get some actual time down to solidify my mind and knowledge. I learned small things that I didn’t previously know, such as some ways the attitude indicator can help that I never knew existed. I am taking one more of these flights with dave soon to make sure I know my stuff, and then will hopefully go up with tom (without a 2 month gap this time ;)).
