Lesson 74 – Solo Maneuvers

My Thursday lesson was canceled because the winds were gusting to 40 knots. Yesterday was an almost perfect day though so, I went out to the practice area for some solo practice. I only did high work this time so it was a lot of steep turns, slow flight and power off stalls (edited 6/11 – see comments). My altitude control during the steep turns was much better. My next solo will be to work on ground reference maneuvers.

You did stalls by yourself? I’ve never been that comfortable doing them! I like to have some backup on those…. 🙂

Let me clarify that a little. I’m OK doing power off stalls by myself. I still want a CFI along to practice power on stalls.

Well, at least with power on stalls, you have one less step for recovery!
