QPT, 27 hours (9.5 solo)

The weather finally cleared, and I headed to the field today. This flight had a couple of new experiences for me. For one, I started using a different VFR navigation plan worksheet. Once I figured out that my mac was printing the duplexed part upside down (and I corrected that), it started making much more sense. I LOVE them. They are so much easier to use than the other two pages of forms you normally use.

Secondly, I actually ACTIVATED my flight plans today! I’ve had issues with previous radios, and yesterday my online flight plan filing did not work. So I had two flight plans, and did flight following, and dodged birds of prey for my 1.5 hours today.

Tomorrow I do my first night flight! I’m going to fly the Sport Star again. I just need to get 5 hours total in that and I can take it solo. I’m halfway there now, so it will probably take 2-3 more flights to finish that requirement.

I’m getting pretty close! I’m not sure if I’ll make my goal of doing my checkride before I leave for Oz, but I’m certainly shooting for that!
