My First Dual Cross Country Flight

The weather finally cooperated and I was able to complete my first dual cross country flight. I’ve been trying to get my cross country in for about a month, and the weather has been so wet and windy that it was cancelled multiple times.  If you’re a student pilot, you have experienced training delays at some point along the way too.  It’s just part of being a pilot, you learn that the weather is always a factor no matter what time of year you fly.

Cross Country Flights and The Wind

Today was to be my first dual cross country flight.  We’ve been trying to get this done for about a month and the weather just hasn’t cooperated.  I know no matter what time of year you end up planning cross country flights, there are weather issues to contend with no matter where you live.  This just happens to be winter and it’s been a really cold, wet and windy one for us here in North Carolina.

Flying With Friends

Today I’m the official amateur photographer for an adventure flight with my friends and fellow pilots, Chris and Eric.  Eric messaged us for a New Year’s Day flight to the Pik-n-Pig in Carthage at 5NC3 airport and I can’t think of a better way to start 2015 than by going flying.
