Instrument Flight 12: Spiders in the Pitot Tube
I had the plane checked out today, and the mechanic found some spiders deep in the pitot tube. I was hoping for something like that; it sure beats having to replace an instrument. I guess a long piece of wire would be a good thing to keep around.
We did a couple of VOR approaches in Lakeland this afternoon. They’re starting to make more sense, but I still need more study time to figure them out. I’m having to be prompted too much to turn, add wind correction, descend, start the timer or whatever.
Today: 1 hour instrument time
Total: 18.2 hours instrument time
