I also had the opportunity to attend a concert on Saturday night. The band O.A.R. is a pretty famous band among college kids and they played over in Mobile at the university. Even though the tickets were general admission, we were able to get seats about 20 feet from the stage really easily. This was cool because this band has sold out arenas and here they were playing for less than 1000 people.
Today, I was scheduled to fly my C4104 which is an end of block flight (end of a chapter). This is kind of an important flight so I could not screw it up. But a front started moving through last night, so I knew there was a possibility I may not fly. Whatever, I'll just show up at the brief ready to go.
After briefing, my IP said to stick around. Great, that means we are going to try and fly in marginal conditions. A great way to suck at a flight. Eventually, we did try to make a break for it, but as soon as we got up in the training area it was impossible to do anything of training value. So, we went down to one of the airfields to practice landings. This turned out to be a great idea. I did very well on all my landings except for the first one, but usually the first one is considered a freebie to suck anyway. After completing about 8 or 9 landings we decided to head back to Whiting. Wow, this was great. A free flight, meaning it was no pressure, and I did well. Definitely the confidence booster I needed. The flight ended up being an incomplete flight because we did not do any high work, i.e. spins, stalls, power loss situations, so I get to do this flight again.
Currently, I am scheduled to fly again early tomorrow morning but the weather looks dismal again, but this time I likely won't fly, but then again only God knows.
But, I also need to get ready to hit it hard through the 4200 block, which is getting me ready to check.
