In which I hang around at the airport for the afternoon, act as ballast in a TravelAir without a headset and do my RA-Aus Certificate flight test.
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 some circuits, manage to remember how to do a precautionary search, and deal with a stack of engine ‘failures’
In which I revise various different things in the circuit and land unusually well (if I do say so myself)
In which I learn the basic theory behind forced landings but don’t get to do any and do a few circuits to ensure I don’t forget how to land.
In which I learn how to use the radio, chase the airspeed during a glide approach and fly some more solo circuits.
