Lesson 23: Fuel bay for days
Today was my first lesson after my first solo. It wasn’t ever going to match the excitement of soloing, but today was really just a fun day of flying.
The lesson was steep turns, so 45 degrees of bank without losing altitude. My instructor demonstrated it first. Then I had a go and absolutely nailed it the first time. And the second. Third. And fourth. My instructor said he couldn’t even do it that well.
After that we did a mini navigation exercise and we found the airfield exactly where we thought it would be. A couple of circuits later we were on the ground.
We thought it might be a good day to check out the tower today so we headed over there to have a chat with the air traffic controllers. It’s so impressive what they do.
On our way over there we had a nice chat with a woman washing her Piper Cub. Turns out she uses it to instruct for tailwheel conversions. Sooo that’s got me thinking...!

Pre-flight 💪 These are a few snaps of my cross-country qualifier last week. I’m coming to an end of my hour building and my last ATPL exams in two months 😆 So I’m now intending to start my MEP, CPL & ME-IR in order to allow me to fly for a living! 👨✈️I cannot wait for this opportunity and I have learned a lot in the past 4 years of my training in becoming a private pilot and trainee commercial pilot. Now to relax over the weekend. What’s everyone up to?
Well done Kevin!
