Well, I have some news to share here, and it’s that I’ve started real-world instruction for my Private Pilot License. I suppose that building the sim was the nudge I needed to try something I’ve always wanted to do in real life. So far I’m three lessons in and having a fantastic time.
I’ll post about the experience here, although I expect the blog will remain primarily focused on simulated rather than real-world flight. But I do expect the topics will broaden some, especially regarding how home simulation and real pilotage fit together. And I guess I may have to change the site tag line a bit.
Here’s a pic of me in the left hand seat of the C 172 in which I’m training. It really is a ton of fun.
