the adventures of me

Wednesday 10/23/13 – Ground Only

by on Nov.17, 2013, under Flying

I showed up Wednesday and my fears had come true. N569FL was still out in maintenance. I met up with Mark and went over my options. I could either grab a unrented Cessna or just scrap flying for the day. Since I really did not care for the Cessna, we canceled flying for the day. Mark took me out on the runway and I got some close up time of the various markings that are at all airports. It is quite amazing the way this is all coordinated and it is really not that complex as you would think. After that we went inside and talked about some more maneuvers that we would be performing including how to do “Pattern” work. The Pattern is just the process in which planes land at an airport. After that we talked about some questions I had including how to handle cross wind take offs and landings. These are still quite worrysome at this point.
