Today was the first day of school of my senior year. Throughout most of my classes I’ve found myself yearning to get back in the air. I am now up to 8.3 hours of flight time, with which I’ve begun to get a good handle on power-on and power-off stalls, ground-reference maneuvers, and steep turns. I’ve also become much more comfortable on the radio, and I am now making the majority of calls during flights. Being a member of the Air Force JROTC at my school also allows me another outlet for aviation advice and knowledge; one of my instructors, Col. Zoller, is a retired Air Force C-5 pilot. Below are some more pictures from my training.
