In which I do my first ‘hire & fly’ as a RA-Aus Certificate holder
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 learn how to start the Jab in cold weather, manage to do half my pre-licence check and fight with the throttle.
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 learn how to deal with unusual attitudes and attempt to fly S&L with my eyes closed.
