Flight 40: Checkride Prep
Today I went up with my CFI to work on some maneuvers and see where I need improvement for my checkride, since I’ve completed all the required tasks and logged enough hours in each category. Not surprisingly, I was pretty rusty on the things I hadn’t worked on recently, like stalls and steep turns.
I did some hood work (unusual attitude recovery, in which he put the plane in a weird configuration, and I had to get it straight and level without being able to see outside), short- and soft-field takeoffs and landings, and an emergency drill.
Today: 1.2 hours
Total: 59 hours
Total Solo: 21.1 hours
