In which I do some solo flying to build up PIC time, dodge some rain and do some rather nice landings
In which I fly in a Pitts, do some more solo time in the Jab, find that I apparantly can’t land for love nor money and experience aerobatics for the first time
In which I head off solo to the training area again, work on stalls, steep turns and forced landings and manage to not get lost
In which I’m let loose in the training area by myself for the first time, practice various things with varying results and play a game of ‘find the airfield’
In which I discover I’m not allowed to take out any cars on approach, learn how to do a short field landing, force 5231 to do a go around and suffer a Tomahawk with a stuck mic.
In which I learn how to use the radio, chase the airspeed during a glide approach and fly some more solo circuits.
In which I’m let loose without any dual, play follow the leader with a Warrior, do several go arounds and wonder if my radio isn’t working.
