The Thrill of it All

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just thought I would pass on to all the newbies out there like me that yesterday I landed my plane for the first time on my own and MAN O MAN what a thrill!! This is my second season flying and I had probably 20 flights in last year and so far this year I have 5. And what a rush landing for the first time (a little nerve racking as well). I have also been using a trainer with a buddy box which is well worth it and allows you to get closer tot he ground way sooner than without the buddy system.

Anyway I just thought I would share my joy and encourage all newbies to hang with it and and one day maybe just one day I will be taking off as well!!

Hey Tim, sorry this is so late but I missed it somehow. Congratulations on the flight and glad to see you were able to continue after I left town on you. I am there weekly if you ever need a hand with anything.

Congratulations. Now comes the fleet of aircraft. Hmmm, can I actually use the term fleet.
I never crash...I land with style!

First landing...

Congrats on your first landing!! Now you need to get out every chance you get to see what else your plane can do. Like flying inverted, hanging on the prop and landing in more windy conditions. Not too windy though! A high wing in the wind wants to balloon and not come down. A low wing has a more constant descent rate even in the wind and is therefore more controllable. You'lll see when you get to plane 2!! Have fun, Fast!
Sometimes your plane catches the wind. Sometimes the wind catches your plane!

:P Nice going. When I first soloed I was so excited after I landed that I had to sit down -- I was holding my breath!! I'm sure that your heart was pounding. Now the real fun starts -- & it never stops!
