Well, weather and vacations are getting in the way a bit, but I got my medical in my hands towards the end of last week, so when we went out today the only question was how rusty was I? Well, I wasn’t too bad. The first pattern wasn’t great, but the landing was OK, and 3 more patterns had me pretty much where I was supposed to be with 3 nice touchdowns in a row. There was no wind, and the sun was setting, so Pete asked me how I felt. I told him I thought I could do it, though the dropping sun and very humid conditions weren’t perfect, I was able to get him to sign my student certificate and he sent me out for 2 full-stop patterns before it was really too late to do any more. Now that I’m signed off, we just need to find enough daylight to allow me to do my required cross-countries, so we’ll probably practice some on Thursday and try to get one in over the weekend. Stay tuned.
If you listen to the audio at the 19:30 mark to hear the “should I solo tonight” discussion.
