I made it into the air today!
It was a lovely day, with near-perfect wind. The instructor said that he’s just going to test me running with the motor...but then it went well enough that he started saying “full power, full power.”
Next thing I know, I’m 5 0 feet off the ground and climbing.
I then flew back and forth several times, learning how to stop rolling (quit putting fast inputs in, and slight pressure on one side), S turns, what turbulence feels like, how to plan the landing, and then how to land.
The. Only down side is that the seat wasn’t comfortable for the whole flight, so for the bulk of the flight I was dangling from the harness, which just kills your legs.
The weather for the next couple days is meant to be amazing, so hopefully there will be more flying.
Sadly, they hasn’t posted the videos tonight of my takeoff and landing...so I’ll be posting those when available.
