Flying in IF flight is fun. But sometimes, I‘m getting bored flying from point A to point B just watching my tablet screen.
In that moment, I start challenging myself. I decide to fly a whole flight without autopilot, I use the „Windy“ app and look for the aiports with the strongest winds to land on, I fly into extreme turbulences and try to hold the plane steady, I try to get my rudder stuck and land with that, I close the HUD and try to land without instruments or I shut down an engine while landing with >30kn sidewinds. I really love that, because a) I love challenges and b) it is a very good training. Not only for my IF flying skills. It is also a good training for my concentration and my multi tasking abilities.
How do you challenge yourself? What do you do in IF when you’re looking for a little adventure?
I‘m looking forward to your answers! Happy landings!
