I’ll spare all the details about it, but the day entailed a few hours of studying and two hours of flying crosswind touch and go’s with my new instructor. A C-172 flies very different than my Tailwind; it just floats and floats when landing. All in all, it was a good day in a very laid back environment. I was anticipating things to be strict and people to be stressed out. It was nothing like that. Students and instructors were all polite and treated everyone as equals. Perhaps that’s not how every day will be, but it was a good first impression.
Politeness should be an every day thing. I can’t imagine why it would not be.
I am glad the day went well, thank you for the update.
