KCTJ > KAUO > KCSG > KCTJ my instructor asked me give the mic seven quick clicks. What a beautiful sight!
I called clear prop, mags on and hit the starter – “click.” I spent more time driving than I did flying.
It took a good bit longer to build airspeed in the 150. However, once we lifted off, the C150 proved to be very responsive.
All in all it was a great day of flying. I really like XC flying, although the work in the air is a lot more to think about than I had anticipated.
It was pretty awesome to fly away from my local airport. This is what it’s all about. Flying towards the skyline of Atlanta on a very clear day is quite an experience.
It was really nice to intersperse some good ole fun flying amidst our normal training.
My instructor wanted me to practice go arounds, and I definitely got the chance.
On my first all solo flight I experienced something new – an emergency being declared on the radio.
Yes, I have finally soloed! When I rolled out onto the runway and pushed that throttle in, my training kicked in and it was business as usual.
