|The Cessna 172 and me after the lesson|
Thursday, September second was supposed to be my first lesson, but the weather wasn't cooperative. Going up for the first time that day would have been like getting a first drivers lesson on the ice. My lesson ended up being on Friday. After a long inspection of the plane, a C-172 Cessna Skyhawk (a 160HP four-seater), we were just about to close the windows and take off when a wasp decided to drop in... For the next few minutes we opened doors and windows until it decided to go out and get blown away by the wind coming from the propeller.
Being the gear-head that I am, I brought my Garmin GPS watch with me. Recording my flights will be a useful tool to analyze my performance in addition to being cool in a geeky kind of way...
