My first time in a GA aircraft,
So, I hopped down to Connecticut to visit the Woodstock fair, for the last two years I’ve attended
I have always noticed there was a Cessna doing patterns around the fair (it seemed interesting so I looked into it).
I found out it was a “Cessna flight experience” that only cost $30 per person for a 20 minute flight around the fair!
So this year I figured, why not give it a go?
(Such an experience is hard for me to put a price tag on!)
Keep in mind, I’ve never flown in a GA aircraft before so a small cramped plane was a new experience to me, I’m very familiar with commercial aircrafts like Boeing and Airbus, so at first I was skeptical of how it will feel giving the major size and speed difference.
Takeoff: Very smooth and barely felt any kick as the plane started its ascent, very different that my previous experiences on large aircraft.
Flight itself: Sort of bumpy due to the weight and size of the plane when wind hits it, but nothing crazy.
Landing: The pilot had to apply heavy rudder due to the wind direction and speed but I didnt even feel us touch the ground as we were landing.
Here are my pictures:
