After a two week lapse in flying (thanks wind!) I got to go back up with my instructor Mic and we went through all of the maneuvers in one go. If we were to continue my “Good, Bad, and the Ugly” theme all 3 categories would’ve definitely been represented on this flight.
I was a little apprehensive when my instructor suggested we go up and do all of the checkride maneuvers. I was thinking more like an easy day in the pattern doing crosswind work since the winds were howling pretty good. Ultimately it was great to practice maneuvers like I would on the checkride, that’s exactly what I need at this point. I’ll have time to study individual things on my own before the checkride. Besides, I might as well take advantage of that guy in the right seat while I’ve got him!
All in all a good flight despite flubbing a few of the maneuvers. I suppose any day you get to fly is a good one.
