Since my last essay I finally had the opportunity to go flying. My instructor and I began with a discussion of VFR Airspace requirements. The preflight inspection was completed followed by a normal engine start and check list procedures. I wrote down the ATIS and obtained a taxi clearance, and then made a normal take-off. My instructor and I proceeded to the practice area where we did medium bank turns, climbs and descents, several s-turns across a road, then proceeded to an uncontrolled airport where we did a touch and go landing and then returned to KILG.
As the flight progressed I found myself becoming more and more comfortable in the airplane, both with all of the flight maneuvers as well as basic navigational skills. I had the opportunity to learn a lot about airport operations and radio communication phraseology.
Throughout the time since my last essay I'm continuing to study for the written exam, placing a lot of emphasis on weather and regulations.
Once again, I want to thank the Girls with Wings for opening a door to allow me to start my flying lessons. I am determine to continue to look for more opportunities to accomplish my final goal in aviation, that of becoming a commercial pilot.
Congratulations, Yeni, for getting back up in the air. It sounds like you are making great progress. Never give up and always keep us posted!
