Best Flying... before a storm?
2010-02-22 17:19:54 ET

So I went up for another lesson today. There is a major storm that is coming up this week. My instructor and I were expecting the air to be very turbulent. And at ground level its was, gusty and fast at about 15-25 knots at the airport. Take off was bumpy, but after about a thousand feet the air was smooth. And I mean really smooth, so smooth that we had a hard time finding anything that even hinted at turbulence. It was literally the calm before the storm. When we got back to the airport after an hour or so, the wind had dropped to a gentle breeze. Was a strange time where the old adage came true.

Stupid little story is stupid... I know

So who's paying for this. Me thoughts you had no job.

My grand mother is paying for it. She wants to see the family have a licensed pilot, I'm not going to argue.

Masters will be done in 2-3 years. Slowly grinding down that hill as well.
