Today, I flew from Atlanta to one of several of the D.C. area airports, Dulles International Airport. Both flights were very turbulent but the best thing about it was that the flights were short. I love short flights because they allow me to land faster. If you don’t know, landing is my favorite part. The whole flight, I always think about greasing the landing 😂. Speaking of landing, the landings were gentle but I wouldn’t say greased 😬 I believe that I pull the throttle back too early. Sometimes I pull it back before 20ft and it causes the landings to not be greased. I’ll work on that later. The coolest thing about this flight is that the plane that flew this route, was the 738 that I flew from BDL back to ATL this summer. (N3749D) I love the picture that FlightRadar24 has of it at SLC. Btw, they need to update the interior on N3749D…But I hope you all had a great thanksgiving and a great weekend. Back to stupid school tomorrow 🤬😂 Anyway, be safe guys and I’ll see you in the skies!!😁😎👨🏾‍✈️
