yay flying!

Yesterday was an excellent day for flying. I got two flights of nearly one hour each back to back. We practiced a lot of the basics like thermaling, turns, and airspeed changes. I did most of the first landing and all of the second by myself. :) I do have to work on the tow though. It's stressful and takes a lot of concentration to stay in the right place behind the tow plane.

I now have 3.7 hours in five flights. Flying is a great way to spend a hot summer weekend, because it's nice and cool at 6000 feet under the clouds!
