PPL training - Emergency procedures and instrument| 1 minute read, 159 words
The weather wasn’t the best I’ve seen on this first working day after Christmas, but it was just good enough for a lesson. I’ll take that!
The lesson for today was more instrument and then some emergency procedures. Both very important.
We had some rain, but I couldn’t see that anyway since I had the foggles on.
The instrument part was more of the same as before, lots of turns and altitude changes. After that, we continued with various emergency procedures.
I got a simulated failure, and had to find the correct checklist, do the items and explain, and then do a simulated approach to an emergency landing. Rinse and repeat.
We finished with some training in the traffic circuit, and did a total of 6 landings.
It got quite dark (but still within VFR Day) on the last couple landings, and seeing the airport all lit up is very different from in the middle of the day.
