Steven’s PPL Diary 10: More Circuits

Sunday, November 15th, 2009


Day 9: I can see clearly now, the fog has gone.

[Exercise: 12 – 13]

Well it seems that the weather God’s have shined down on me, along with the sun, and finally after 4 weeks of not being able to fly, I finally got to get up in the sky. Clear skies, a slight wind and it was back to circuit training for me.

I can see the end of the runway in November!!!

Tom’s Diary: Nearing My Qualifying Cross Country

Sunday, May 24th, 2009


I am currently 3 – 4 hours away from my qualifying cross country now and there are mixed emotions. I don’t drive yet so unlike my friends at ground school, they are very familiar with the roads and could navigate on them alone. The number 1 worry I have, and most likely the majority would is getting lost. I cant wait to complete it, to finish and have mastered over 80 miles of flight through airspace riddled with restrictions and obstructions. I can only imagine I will have the feeling of ‘being a pilot’ like that I felt when I completed my first solo after 14 hours.
