Hours – 24.3
Since I have been pretty busy with VOR navigation, airspace and communications practice, I thought I was getting a little rusty with my landings, so I went in today to brush up. Yigal wasn’t available today, but Dan, another instructor was. I wanted to go up solo, but the wind was too much at gusts of up to 20KTS. Based on my first landing, I am glad Dan was available. It was a little iffy.
Basically, it was a very straightforward day. I did 7 touch and goes and got 1.2 hours of time in. Besides that first landing, all the others were pretty good. I did make an effort to keep on the centerline during my final approach and also used more of a side slip, as opposed to my usual crabbing. I like the side slip better and think that will be my crosswind landing technique of choice.
I think I need to double my income, double up on my lessons and work half as much. That would get me done faster. How’s that?
Till next time…
