  Yesterday I did some more solo work. I went up with my instructor for 3 circuits and then did 7 on my own. He had me doing short field work. I'm realy having fun with this.

  Hey Leeann... Just for fun I checked out the link to the VNC (VFR Navigational Chart) for Lee airport.  That is in a busy area... My instructor was telling us about that area a while back when we were talking about control zones and airspace classifications, because he went to Washington one time in a small plane. Tight security and you do not deviate at all from your flight path... or you get a visit you don't want.Pretty much a mind you "P's" and "Q's" and dot your "i's" and cross your "t's" kinda area. Looks like Lee is just inside that zone... on the other side from me! LOL

Yep, that sounds about right. I imagine that an F-18 looks pretty nasty from a Cessna  Cheesy

Next we have me taking off with the instructor (James) Then landind with James, then James getting out of the plane, and me taking off.

  Ant pic that just looks like land scape actually has the plane in it somewhere... usualy centered.

Nothing to say about these shots except it was my solo inniciation!  Also on the pics with the plane in the distance... be for I resized the pics I could zoom in enough to see that the flaps are down on the landings.

 I haven't been keeping a good report here... but I thought I could update a bit.
 My training has been going very well and I am getting closer to my in plane exam. I still have the written exam to do too... but right now I'm focusing on the in plane work.
 Yesterday I did my first solo cross country flight. This is a flight of 150 nautical miles and 2 stops at airports other than the one I departed from. The coarse I took was leaving Welland to St.Thomas and landing. Then taking off again and flying to Hamilton and landing. Then it was a flight back to Welland from there. At each stop I had to get a stamp in my logbook to prove I landed there, the cool thing about that is at Hamilton airport... that is where the Warplane Museum is. I went there to get a stamp. Not only did I get a stamp... They had one of the Lancaster pilots sign my logbook!
  I added pictures of my map with the coarse I used and one of me standing by by plane at the museum. Our scanner isn't big enough to get it all in so St. Thomas isn't in the pic.

  Cheers for now.
