Checking back in, since I’m grounded by weather today.
I started Feb 17, and flew my first solo flight (takeoff/landing) yesterday. Today’s the second day that I haven’t been able to fly due to weather (last Friday was called off, but we rescheduled for Sunday). I’m really seeing that if student’s knowledge is keeping up, instructors are willing to fly as much as possible.
My night flight was amazing. We flew from OGD down I-15, through the SLC class Bravo, and did a couple landings at PVU (Provo), then back up I-15. My instructor asked if I wanted to do a touch-and-go at SLC, and the controllers were very helpful in fitting us into the traffic. Not everyone can say they’ve done a touch-and-go at a Bravo airport!
Right now my Private Pilot checkride is scheduled for April 5th, which would be 49 days (35 weekdays) since I started. We might have to push it back a little, just because of weather, but I’m still trying hard to make it work.
