This Old "Thing"

Posted 06-26-2015 at 12:43 PM by n122vu

"No. I, um... I can't go in this. It's, uh... It's broken.."

"No, it's not broken, it's being maintained."

Got a call from my CFI Monday morning. You guessed it. The plane is still down. Or, well, actually, down again. Seems the new engine was installed, everything was looking good. Then they recalled the engine, something related to the cylinders. So DCFS had to pull the engine and ship it back. According...

Flight 24 - Bring Me Solo

Posted 06-18-2015 at 08:15 PM by n122vu

Seriously. Forget the Wookie, I just want to solo.

Last week's lesson (Tuesday, 6/9) was strictly focused on landings. With a 9-knot direct crosswind, chances of soloing were slim, but I still had hope. However, I went into the lesson disregarding the idea of soloing, just wanting to make up for my previous lesson that proved how bad an idea it is for me to fly when I haven't slept much.

I felt rushed. For some reason I felt rushed for most of the lesson. Maybe...

T+ 130 Engineering Log

9 days of phasing burns and SOI were executed with no flags on the EHEs and we are now playing catch-up with Titan. We've had a few medical situations to deal with since we arrived in the Saturn system as viewing the ring plane close up can be one of the most breathtaking sights known to man. Sadly, once we have reached the Titan orbital plane, the rings will be nearly invisible edge on.

All boards are green at this time.

Flight 23 - Quick Update, Crazy Week

Posted 06-10-2015 at 01:35 PM by n122vu

Monday, June 8, 2015

Last week was one of those crazy ones. It started with me only getting 4 1/2 hours of sleep Sunday night. Sleep issues continued through the week and this past weekend. With a flight lesson (and hopefully a solo) scheduled for last Tuesday evening, I was hoping Monday night's sleep would be better. It might have been, but it ended up not mattering.

Monday morning (6/1) my CFI texted me he'd be out of town due to a change in his work schedule,...
