Lesson 44 – Soft Field and More Hood Time

This lesson added another .5 hours of simulated instrument time to my total. In addition to more of the straight and level, turns and climbs and descents I did last time, Sandy added distraction by having me tune the radio and set the GPS while still maintaining my instrument scan. I kept the airplane right side up but my heading and altitude did wander more than they should have. I don’t think I did too bad though.

We tried to do some soft field work at Burlington but only got in a couple landings. The wind was so strong that I was just fighting that and not getting much out of the soft field practice. It is fun to land on the grass though.
