Solo Pattern work – 10/13/2010

We had out time to fly solo in pattern today. The goal was to practice regular landings, short and soft field landings and work in pattern.

Weather was VFR, wind calm on ground, but we had some strong winds 1000 AGL, we have to crab downwind and the base legs. On Final, I found it that the airplane was not sinking as usual until 100 feet above ground. On my first approach, I figured it out that I’m high and I decided to go around ! Next times was more controlled and knowing the wind condition help to have good landings.

Next Wed is solo day again and I will need to work on soft landings.

GPS track of the flight:

Solo Flight Time: 0.9 hrs
Solo Landings: 6
