Saturday afternoon in Oconomowoc was great! Preston, Brent and Mike met me at the field for more training. Brent was able to add a couple more flights to his logbook. Everyone increased their skill set.
Past students Josh and Allen were also on hand to take advantage of the conditions. If you look closely you can see them in the photo above. They both enjoy flying quite high.
Sunday I met Denise at the airport for an introduction. She was hooked immediately! Turns out she was following Reon and I around in her Jeep as he and I were flying around Brooklyn Friday.
Midday Monday Jeff’s new Parajet Maverick and his helmet arrived, thanks UPS guy! Saturday Jeff and I plan to assemble this bad boy and break it in properly before hopefully taking it skyward.
Monday evening Josh and Peter were at the airfield again adding to their skills. This is a really fun time during training. The students make many short flights working on one particular in-flight skill per flight in addition to perfecting their take offs and landings. Peter managed to complete all but one of the needed skills. The only task he had left is the “mid-air restart”. This is where we have the pilot turn off the motor mid flight and start it back up again. It can be somewhat challenging to master this but it is a great confidence builder knowing you can do it.
Spring weather is fickle but we are making the most of it!
