Recently I was perusing the forums and came across a great video. It features a man named Kye who built a Van’s RV-6A. It does an excellent job of capturing the “why we fly” message in addition to taking you on a flight in his beautiful plane. I hope to build my own RV one day and thought this video was worth sharing.
After thinking I was in a landing rut it finally all worked out. During my last few lessons I finally put it all together and have become more consistent with my landings. This morning I went up with the instructor and we did three touch and go’s. After that he told me to pull over to the ramp near the tower. He signed my log book and then instructed me to do three more touch and go’s then to taxi back to the ramp.
I was nervous for a split second right before I called ground control. As soon as I keyed up though I focused on the task at hand and the nerves all went away. It was definitely an odd feeling not have my instructor there by my side. The ceiling was a bit low as you can see in the video but the winds were calm, still a nice day to fly. The video does not have audio because it just didn’t sound right. Hopefully in the future I can shoot some HD video with cockpit audio but for now this will have to do.
