I like Crosswinds :-)


Well today's lesson went real well, I finally managed to land in crosswinds!!! Wonders will never cease uh...

I performed 5 landings. The first two, I assumed that I was simply getting lucky...u know....like when you score bullseye on the dart board twice in a row...but I nailed all five of them. Needless to say, I am a happy camper.

We also performed some slow flight maneuvers, turns, climbing etc. Amazingly, we had to put this into practice not 10 Min's later, when while on a crosswind leg from a touch n go, a plane entered the pattern on a 45 deg to downwind, so we went to slow flight to keep off his tail....

All in all, a good day it was!

On a side note, I just got back from Oshkosh! Every pilot should pilgrimage this event at least once in their lives....in a word - AWESOME.
