Lesson 85 – Another Checkride Prep Solo

This flight was a short solo to go through all the maneuvers. I started out with the high work – slow flight, steep turns and stalls. Those all went fine. I pulled the power to idle for a simulated engine out. Once down to 1700 feet, I stopped the descent and used my chosen emergency field for some rectangular patterns. I followed those by several turns around a point and finally, some S-turns. The winds were very light so, none of the ground reference maneuvers were much of a challenge. I tried to concentrate on my rudder use which, I think, is getting better.

On the way back home, I did some VOR tracking and used my sectional to locate objects on the ground for pilotage practice. I then followed it all up with a pretty decent landing on runway 5.
