First time in a Cessna 172

Today was my first time flying in a Cessna 172. It was a free flight offered by the Mildura Aero Club.

This was by far one of the coolest things I have done!

Here are some pictures from my awesome experience.

sorry, I am not the greatest at making topics.

Great pictures, the next thing you can look forward to which is much better in my opinion is flying your first solo :).

She’s a fun little plane isn’t she? I bet it inspires your love for GA now. Wait til your first solo that’s a rush! Then your solo cross country. Landing at an un firmilar airport, is a bit nerve wracking at first. Never be afraid of the go around that’s for sure.

I’m amazed at how smoothly the Cessna can land, and how quickly it slows down! It must have been awesome to see the Rex Saab and QantasLink Q400 up close.
