Runway in use: 15

Goals for this flight:

  • Work on Stalls - Check, went well

  • Do a couple of steep turns - Check, sloppy

  • Touch and Goes with concentration on soft field technique - will do next time, today was no good.

  • Work on Rudder Usage - check, still needs work

  • Taxi and Rollout inputs - still needs work

Today's flight did not go so well. It was much bumpier than I would have liked and the wind was quite unpredictable. The active runway was 15 but the winds were often better for another runway. I would rather be safe and take the active than risk causing a problem by choosing another runway when the airport is very busy.

I did a couple of touch and goes, none of which were great. I flew out and did a stall which was good and a steep turn which was sloppy at best. I came back in and did a final landing and called it a day. I wasn't really happy with my performance today, but nothing was terrible, so it was still a good day out. I felt a bit uncomfortable behind the yoke today which hasn't happened for a while. I need to get more time in for practice so I can always feel confident on my flights.
