I completed my last 0.8 hours in the circuit. It was a bumpy ride with winds gusting to 17 knots. Even at circuit altitude the winds were probably 25-30 knots which made for a little more concentration in the circuit.
There was a lot of jet and IFR traffic that night landing on 15, while I was landing on 21. The controller would broadcast wind checks every few minuites or so as the traffic on 15 was landing in a gusty crosswind.
I adjusted my approach speed to be 5KT higher than normal due to the gusting winds and 20° of flaps only.
So what’s next? My FI suggested that I start on my Muli-IFR training right away. It’s a shame that I will have to get a new instructor as I really like this one. I’m also excited to get on the Piper Seminole and start flying a “real” plane.
In the meantime I’ve been keeping my head down in the books to prep for not only the CPL written exam but also getting prepped for the IFR training.
