First Flight--Kissimmee, Florida


Gadabout completed his first flight in a Cessna 172 today from KISM airport. The flight was completed after 1.2 hours, 2 touch and goes, 1 go around and a full stop. All aproaches were flown to runway 15. The flight focused on unusual attitude recovery, standard rate turns and precesion turns. The rust is thick, but I am studying hard and playing by the rules. More to come.

Congrats on getting back in the air.... I couldn't stand retirement, so I'm like you it's back to aviation.... I'm in the 2nd part of the airframes course at Spartan.... Working on my A&P and Maintenance degree

Dudes,
After CFII and MEI, I plan on Multi-engine Sea rating for the fun of it.

Jimmy,
Keep your nose in the books!
