Almost There

4:09 PM Wednesday, August 25, 2010

So today we again worked on landings. My approaches now rock. My airspeeds are pretty consistent and I can fix the problem when I am too high, too low, too fast, too slow or a combo there of. The only thing that is holding me back is my flare is not always consistent because I am not always judging my height off the runway correctly. It is getting better and I actually had one really good landing and a bunch of decent landings today.

The scary part. I think it is time for my solo. Part of me is super super super excited, but part of me wants to shit my pants. Right now I would say the ratio of excited to scared is about 50/50. I know that I spend part of a day with Tim in the plane and then he gets out so I can solo so I think if I hit 3 good landings before he gets out the ratio will go down to about 90 percent excited 10 percent scared.

Holy crap they are actually going to let me fly alone!!
