Some Multi-Engine Time
Today my CFI had to deliver a twin-engine Piper to Sarasota–Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) to get some avionics work done and invited me to ride with him. It seemed odd sitting in the right seat, just watching him fly, and I was surprised a few minutes into the flight when he asked if I’d like to take the plane for a few minutes. It was my first time flying a twin, which wasn’t that different, since he was doing the additional instrument scanning required. The big change was flying from the right seat. I didn’t do anything but straight-and-level flight (or at least attempted it), but I did get to log a few minutes of multi-engine time.
