Flight 2: Wind Makes a Difference
Today the wind was about 15 knots, which added a bit more challenge as I continued to work on fundamentals. I spent too much time looking at the instruments instead of outside, to the point where the CFI put a sticker over one of them to keep me from staring at it. He demonstrated a stall and introduced the concepts of slow flight and traffic patterns.
We did a touch & go at Peter O. Knight (TPF), which is a neat airport to fly into, since it’s located on the tip of an island between the Port of Tampa and the skyscrapers of downtown. Guess which side the pattern is on.
Today: 1 hour
Total: 1.5 hours
