…and I have chosen to accept it!
Now that I’ve got a licence (a proper shiny one from Transport Canada!) I need something to focus on. I need to fly every month to keep current at the flight school and I know me; being the conservative flyer that I am, if I’m not careful I know that all I’ll do each month is fly out to Claremont, pootle around a bit and come home.
Okay but not exactly riveting and hardly a good use of all my hard work.
So I need a plan and I need to push myself while I still have the confidence to do so. I’m kind a feeling on top of my game at the moment, like a proper pilot. Let’s capitalise on that. Let’s take the things I’m still nervy and unsure about and work on those.
Well finding airports, even larger international ones has always been a teensy bit of a problem for me and I still struggle to visualise joining paths for the circuit.
We should do something about that.
Here it is then.
I am going to visit every single airport on my sectional chart.
Now some of them I won’t be able to land at because the insurance won’t let me land on anything over than a hard surface (so no gravel or grass) but I can at least do a “low and over”. Either way I’m going to find those suckers!
Obviously this is a majorly long term plan, we are talking years probably. But at least when I find myself needing to fly, I’ll have a goal in mind.
