Go? No go?

The weather was crazy today. It rained in the afternoon and I thought, “man, another rained out lesson”. But it passed pretty quickly. When I got in my car the sun was out and all was good. 10 minutes later, when I got to the airport, it was pouring. The winds were gusting to 22 knots and, once again, it did not look like I was going flying. I hung around the airport just in case. The sun came out again. I checked the weather with my instructor and we decided to try it. (hey, if anything he’ll fly the plane.)

It turned out to be great and not very choppy. The winds kept shifting but it was manageable.

We pretty much reviewed today. We did a simulated emergency landing, slow flight, power-on and power-off stalls, S-turns, turns around a point and headed back home.

I had a few new things with me today. I got my own fuel tester (so I didn’t have to borrow Tom’s anymore). I got a knee board – now I can write down the ATIS information instead of trying to remember it. And finally, I got a new David Clark headset. No more messing around with those rentals.
