A little look around on a busy Sunday afternoon at Moraine Airpark I73, then a flight to check a few more things off for my oral and flight tests. Moraine airport is home to Beaver valley aviation if you are interested in lessons.
With work obligations life and weather getting in the way I have spent the last 4 years learning to be a private pilot. It was and still is a long road and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have completed almost every test and requirement leading up to my final check ride for my private pilot certificate. I think the foundation laid by my first instructor at a small flight school on Clinton county Airport (I66) has served me well on my journey. I have had no less than seven different instructors but the basics and the foundation laid by my first instructor has gotten me to where I am now, you might be thinking where is that and I will tell you I am around 4 hours and 10 landings away from being ready for my check ride from an FAA examiner. There are a slew of required tests knowledge and maneuvers including but not limited to weather, aircraft, systems, performance, airports and regulations that must be learned or demonstrated for your final check ride. I have enjoyed and learned from almost every lesson and solo flight I have had on my journey to becoming a private pilot. The requirements have and are changing slightly so as to make newer pilots safer after they achieve the coveted PPL. In my journey I have had instruction in a Cessna 150 and 172 along with Champion model 7.
An app for pilots but a little cheaper than Foreflight. I have used this app on my Ipad and have had good results so far currently, I am currently using the free version and will probably update to the paid version later.
Here are a few students learning with various tail wheel aircraft. The flight school is normally very busy in the summer with a good selection of tail wheel aircraft. Our staff has edited these videos and they are not for training purposes.
