I headed over to Lancaster with Barnet today. He wanted to practice some instrument approaches, so I acted as a safety pilot while he was under his makeshift ‘view limiting device’ – a folded chart, which actually worked quite well. I flew over there and handed over the controls after Barnet had put on his oh so fashionable chart. He did two RNAV approaches, one missed and one landing. Then we had some lunch.
We had some spark-plug fouling we had to deal with before leaving. Then headed home through the Class B and Barnet did another instrument approach into Caldwell. Fun day! ..and now that I have my license, I’m not just extra weight in the right seat
