Continued Flying Lessons

I’m greatly enjoying flying again — I feel much more confident at it now than I did in the past, both on the technical issues of flying, as well as secondary things like radio protocols, which I tended to stumble over in the past. Today was a lot of fun because it was so turbulent, and the plane was getting tossed around quite a bit. I do my medical on Wednesday, so I should be flying solo quite soon. I’m definitely looking forward to getting the whole license completed so that I can do things like rent planes and take much more interesting and unrestricted trips than would otherwise be possible — especially if I want to go explore Nunavut and other places that can really only be toured by air.

    Wow, cool. This reminds me of my dad when I was younger. He got his license and used to rent a plane for 1-2 hours and just fly around, and sometimes let me come along. It was super fun! Good luck.

    A lot of pilots-in-training listen to air traffic control radio transmissions at sites like just to get the lingo and protocols down as second nature. Might be a good thing to have on as background noise!

    when we all get together down here we will need an ultralite we or one of us has a big enough boat to stow it so that one can make beer runs or fly-ins with the ultra lite – landing and taking off on water

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
