If you're learning to fly, or thinking of learning, then here's the place to post your questions, comments and experiences
After having a first lession with Mickey at York Flying Schol http://www.yorkflyingschool.co.uk( Breighton ) I had a great time.
Everything was really well explained and I got to do quite a bit of flying
The Wife planned it all as a surprise and I was - very..
So thanks to Mickey for a great lession - and hopefully on to many more.

Many congrats in joining the merry band of Student pilots!!! Welcome to the world of highs, lows, frustrations, "i want to throw the textbook out of the window" moments, and downright "Yessssss That was FANTASTIc!!" moments! Be prepared for flying to take over your life and to make many more new friends who share your passion...its a great club to be in.

I used to play around with RC a bit (still do on and off when I have the time - which is almost never). I only played about with ARTF electric foam models, but there's something undeniably relaxing about pottering around the local field on summer's evening! In hindsight it was probably a subconscious last ditched attempt to satisfy the urge to fly without taking the leap to actually training for a PPL. It didn't work!
From your school/club. Some have particular sequences/items that they prefer for their a/c; mine issue you with a checklist that reflects this. There are generic C150 list out on t'interweb if not which would make a good starting point for your own. I'm not sure why one would ever spend flying money on one though.
No no - I'd ordered some of the pooley's books.
Then my very nice sister in law bought me book 1 for my birthday - wasnt that nice of her
Managed to Find a C150 check sheet
Now to try and remmeber the radio calls..
Well, Lesson 3 today....
Turned up bright and early - well early anyway too see a cub come in on a crosswind landing - wind was 15-18 according to metars nearest..
The Cub looked to be wagging its wings to stay straight - but got down ok.
I started questioning my sanety at that point....
A coffee later Mickey joined me and off we went, Sorted the C150 out and taxied to hold. Mickey exolling the virtues of the Cessna 150 in a crosswind.
It was a little erm lively low down but up north of breighton it calmed down to just bumpy.
Great lesson doing 30 degree turns and and touch up on trimming.
Really reall enjoyed it today.... Whooo hooo still can't get over i'm flying an airplane
