I had an early morning flight today, that went so perfectly.
I nailed steep turns perfectly. Stalls, slow flight, ground ref. All the maneuvers just fell together for me today.
My instructor actually used the words "If this was your checkride, you would have a rating today."
I'm super psyched. I'm getting really comfortable talking with the tower. I was nervous about it at first, and I'm getting back into it again. Things are really coming together.
By next week I should be ready to solo, and I'm aiming to have my Private rating done before Thanksgiving!
