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!!!

Day 7 – ‘Ouch’
Stalling introduction cancelled, introduction to flying circuits.

[Exercise: 12,13]

This time, I was sure my lesson was going to be cancelled, low cloud, wind was really blowing some. Fortunately for me, and of course my loyal readers (Are there any? I’ve yet to have any fan mail…) it wasn’t, but we did have to change the briefing, cloud was too low for stalling practice so circuits it was.

The instructor sent me out to the aircraft (the wrong one again, although, I’m getting familiar with it now) to do the pre-flight checks whilst he went to check the weather (and possibly seek divine intervention for my flying).

May God have mercy on my soul.
