Passed my 10th hour in training.

Today marked hour 11(.3) in training for my PPL. It was gorgeous but a bit gusty. Here’s some photos from today.

Nice. Hope you got some fun flying in gusty conditions. Do you happen to know what the winds were when you flew?

What would be the 3 most important tips for a future pilot. I’m going to start training for a PPL soon.

  1. Save your money up. You’ll want to fly as much as it’s practical, the better you can stay proficient the easier it will be in the end.
  2. Study, study, study. Watching videos online, doing some book work helps. Get your hands on an FAA practice exam textbook if you can, I recommend ASA.
  3. Listen and watch what your instructor shows you during instruction. And don’t let bouncy, uncoordinated landings get you down in the beginning, no one can land worth crap in the start… Trust me haha, I left with a bruised spine after one of my landings today. ;)

Went up for some landings this gorgeous and very smooth evening… even brought some friends up for their first ride in a small airplane. Everyone had a blast.
