Feature Article: My First Month As A Student Pilot
Wednesday: No rain; no visibility either.
Thursday: Take instructor to lunch. Discover I don't know enough
to take instructor to lunch.
Friday: FLY! Do first stall and second stall during same maneuver,
cover instructor with lunch.
Monday: Learned not to scrape frost off plexiglass
with ice-scraper. Used big scratches on
windshield as marker to set pitch.
Tuesday: Instructor wants me to stop calling throttle, "THAT
BIG KNOB THING."
Also, hates it when I call instruments 'GADGETS'.
Wednesday: Radios won't pick up radio stations, so I turn them
off. Instructor seems
to think I missed something during the introductory flight.
Thursday: Learned 10 degree bank is not a steep turn. Did stall
again today. Lost 2000
feet. Instructor said that was some kind of record. -My first
Friday: Did steep turn. Instructor said I was ready for inverted
Monday: Instructor called in sick. New instructor
told me to stop calling her "BABE"
Did steep turns. She said I have to have permission for inverted
Tuesday: Instructor back. He told me to stop calling him "BABE",
too. He got mad
when I pulled power back on takeoff because the engine was too
Wednesday: Instructor said after the first 20 hours, most students
have established a
learning curve. He said it seemed there was only a slight bend
Thursday: Did stalls. Clean recovery. Instructor said I did good
job. Also did turns
around a point. Instructor warned me never to pick ex-fiancee's
house as point again.
Friday: Did pattern work. Instructor said that if downwind, base,
and final formed a triangle,
I would be perfect. More praise!
Monday: First landing at controlled field.
Did fine until I told the captain in the 747 ahead of
us on taxiway to move his bird. Instructor says we'll have ground
school all this week on radio
Tuesday: asked instructor if everyone in his family had turned
gray at such an early age. He
smiled. We did takeoff stalls. He says I did just fine but to
wait until we reach altitude next
time. C-150 will be out of shop in three days when the new nose-strut
and tire arrive.
Instructor says his back bothers him only a little.
Wednesday: Flew through clouds. I thought those radio towers were
a lot lower. I'm sure my
instructor is going gray.
Thursday: Left flaps down for entire flight. Instructor asked
why. I told him I wanted the extra
lift as a safety margin. More ground school.
Friday: Asked instructor when I could solo. He laughed till he
cried. What was so funny?
