Solo Again

I’d stated in my last post that I got signed off on a Flight Review.  Well, today was my first solo flight in forever.  It’s been about 9 years.  I had been thinking about doing a little cross-country practice going out to an unfamiliar field a little south of Memphis, but the weather was overcast with a fairly low ceiling so I just stayed in the pattern practicing landings.  This was a good thing.  I didn’t have a single landing that I was proud of, but I got in a bunch of practice and they got better.  I did a mix of full-stop and touch-and-go landings to mix it up a little.  A nice plus was that there was actually other traffic in the pattern (and staying in the pattern).  It’s a little more fun when doing pattern work with others.  In the end, I can add 1.1 of solo PIC time to the logbook.
