Flight 5/8/2010 – TOLA, Emergency Procedures

Today I start by pre-flight N738TJ. For some reason I like this airplane better than out other training plan. After completing the pre-flight, we find out that we can’t stay in KWHP pattern today due to Challenge Air Event (http://challengeair.com)
We decided to go to KVNY (van nuys) airport and practice out there. It was a very nice flying day, after right downwind departure we headed to VNY. I checked the runways and tower frequencies and announced our intention for left pattern options.
I must say that I really like VNY, it’s more open and wide area, compared to WHP, the tower is really friendly and I had a great time during my almost 15 landings and touch and goes. We also practiced Emergency Procedures, Engine off landings.
My landings are getting better, I still need to work on keeping the plane 3 feet above the ground and final flare.
