My flying lesson

I had a great labor day weekend with a one hour flying lesson tucked somewhere in between.

My instructor handled the take off and landing because I would not have managed those on the first run.  The lesson was in Maryland and we went over Fort Meade, Ravens stadium, downtown Baltimore, United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Key Bridge and the Bay Bridge.  I did most of the flying.  The instructor would point to a site and tell me to go around it or towards it.  It was quite easy because I quickly realized that flying is just like driving.  I don’t like driving at all and unfortunately, that is how I felt about flying.  It was just a one hour lesson and I could see myself not going back for another lesson.

All in all it was fun and one item off my bucket list.

    Congratulations. When I tested a commercial aircraft DC-9 in a Simulator, it was not so easy. 🙂

        Did You see my post and wondered why so many buttons are needed in a commercial air plane? What about the video? I am sure that You did not take a look at both of them. 🙂

        Thanks for the congrats. I can fly anything now. Yeah, right. I had a look at your photos and video – are you sure pilot sreally use all those knobs and thingies? The plane I flew was small, so did not have a lot of thingies. Thanks for commenting.
