Thread: First Flight As A Private Pilot

    Default First Flight As A Private Pilot

    Hi,

    Just thought I would share my first flight as a private pilot which I did yesterday. Rusty on the com radio, transponder didn't work for approach at first, had a go around landing due to being too fast on approach, but still got pictures of my house and got to see a lot of scenery.

    It was a good time

    Enjoy

    Congratulations, Eric, that is one big step in your aviation endeavor! I had my Private Pilot check ride some 53 years ago and I can remember it as if it were yesterday! Some days ahead you might take it for granted, but it will be with you for the rest of your life. Good as long as you can continue passing the medicals!

    Good job! - Rick

    Working on that too...I've lost around 30ish pounds and I'm determined to keep that medical (even if it goes to Basic med later). My mile time is around a minute higher than my best when I was in high school (not bad for a 40 year old).
