First flight lesson!

Yesterday I took my first flight lesson and I had so much fun, when we were ready at the ramp the instructor told me I would be the one flying. I thought he meant I would do a few turns once in the air, but he had other ideas, he had me taxi to the runway and takeoff(they weren’t kidding about that right rudder)once we were in the air he had me climb to about 2000ft and maintain that and do a few basic maneuvers. About 15 mins into the flight he cut the power and had me fly a bit with no power to simulate an engine failure. He then had me fly downwind then onto left base where he took control of the plane and landed. It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to get my pilots license.

Here’s a few pics of my flight:
