"It's a short piece of time but just enough to find
A little peace of mind under the sun somewhere"

Life has been busy. Work has been busy. Blogging is back-burner these days, so apologies ahead of time for the delays between posts.

Monday, 9/21/2015 The plan: Depart at 1200Z from HNB for SIV. Upon landing at SIV, shut down & take a break for a few minutes, get my things organized, then depart SIV for MVN. Same plan at MVN, though originally...

Flight 36 - Looking for Some Guy Named Charlie

Posted 09-26-2015 at 01:11 AM by n122vu
Updated 09-26-2015 at 02:19 PM by n122vu (Spelling correction)

9/15 was scheduled to be my long solo cross-country. Unfortunately, as they often do, day-job commitments got in the way. Randy wouldn't be available to sign me off for the trip, so we elected to meet that evening and fly down to KEVV for work in the Charlie (Class C) airspace.

The flight down was uneventful. and as had been the case for many flights recently, it was very hazy - hazy enough in fact that neither one of us could see KEVV with certainty until we were about 7 nm out,...

Flight 35 - North and South

Posted 09-16-2015 at 04:20 PM by n122vu

I've been so busy the last week blogging has moved to the back burner, even though sharing the excitement of my first solo cross-country has been the first thing on my mind.

I'd taken 1/2 day vacation and was up early that morning getting the latest weather and winds aloft. The plan was to take off at 8 am, fly north to SIV, land, take a quick break, then fly back. I ended up taking off about an hour later than planned due to SIV being socked in with 3-4 nm visibility due to fog....

Flights 33 & 34 Cross-country - Working out the Kinks

Posted 09-02-2015 at 03:07 PM by n122vu

My first cross-country after my medical flight test was to KCUL, Carmi, IL. I won't go into too much detail, but the 'clumsy' version of Brian showed up in full force during this flight.

I blame a lot of it on my kneeboard. On the way to my medical flight test I'd used the Sporty's tri-fold kneeboard, strapped to my leg, and it worked ok, but I found myself fumbling for a couple things and not really having enough room for everything I needed. For the flight to KCUL, Randy suggested...

SODA Story Goes...

This was one of the biggest milestones I've been wanting to get behind me since I started flying - my Medical Flight Test. The day has arrived. We're flying to KJVY to meet the FAA Airman Safety Inspector (ASI) who will be evaluating my performance to ensure my visual deficit is not a factor in my abilities. There are two possible outcomes: Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory.

This will be a slightly long post as it is really three flights in one.

I arrived at the airport...
