So, yesterday I had my first flight lesson. It did not count towards my PPL, as it was only a introductory flight with the instructor whilst I was taking a look at his flight school. Although it didn’t “officially count”, the instructor still let me be pilot flying. I did everything from taxi, takeoff, and a few standard right, and left hand turns. We also simulated an engine failure, and even performed a go around! The instructor only took over when he had to perform the engine run-up, and took over the flare and touch down. My dad was also along for the ride, and took a few pictures.
This was an incredibly humbling, and amazing experience. I now have a much deeper appreciation for the C172, and can’t wait to start working towards my pilot’s licenses.
