No flying the past weekend!
So this weekend turned out to be disastrous for me. The powerful cold front whipped up 40kmh winds on Sunday and on Saturday it was too cloudy! Very disappointing for me as I so look forward to it, it is what gets me through a busy work week sometimes just knowing that I will be flying again soon. Sunday morning was -6 with the wind chill factored in. To put it mildly, it was COLD!!
For the first solo, yes, i’m still rambling on about it, you need clear and calm conditions before the instructor will sign me off. So i guess I wait. I need to get permission from my boss to perhaps take Friday off to write my first of 8 exams.
For the successfull completion of a PPL, I need to 40 hours plus I must’ve achieved > 65% for eight exams. Might as well study during the times when the weather is not playing along!
