Loosening the Leash

I went out today for my first unsupervised solo. I decided to stay in the pattern and work on my landings. I was out for an hour and did seven landings. Two of them were full stop, so I spent some time taxiing back. The first was a go around… that’s nothing new (have you seen my first solo video?)

I did a bunch of touch and go’s. They were decently smooth, but I don’t have the perfectly smooth landing down. I’m much better at transitioning into the flare than I use to be. I still have to work on squeezing back slowly to get a real smooth one.

Also, I learned that pushing the plane back on your own is kinda hard.
