General Handling

April has been a reasonably quiet month for me. Since I've come back from Whakatane at the end of March I've had 10 flights, but I've had quite a bit of learning new things, and a few excellent and quite eventful solo "general handling" flights.

This month I've been learning:

  • Steep turns
  • Practice Forced Landings (AKA Forced Landings Without Power)
  • Basic instrument flight

These are the final lessons before I move on to VFR navigation next month. Actually, the course feels like it's progressing quickly, we're due to complete all our single engine training by around the end of June, then we'll move on to the instrument and twin-engine phase of the course
