If you're learning to fly, or thinking of learning, then here's the place to post your questions, comments and experiences
Today when returning from a cross country on landing I tried to use right rudder but could not press the rudder, I found my foot was not on the rudder pedal but because I was wearing a new pair of shoes I did not have the feel I normally would and I just couldn't seem to get my right foot were it was supposed to be. No harm done but could have been different if had been a crosswind so learned a valuable lesson to make sure my foot is were it should be before I need it.
Was wondering has anyone else experienced similar or have I just been particularly dumb
I seem to recall some people mentioning that sometime ago. Can't remember the topic tho
<-- (yet another) ppl blog.

I have a some sticky soled Oakley Race driving shoes that are a treat to fly in, but seem to be OK with aforementioned Timberland boots too. Have also flown in wellies, but maybe my lack of discerning choices in footwear says something about my rudderwork

Poor pedal feel and a tendency for the heels to "stick" against the cockpit floor.
RAF boots have surprisingly thin soles, alledgedly known as "RAF-Soles" or abbrevieated further. Maybe I just made the last bit up.
I once upon a time did an exchange job in Australia and not being up on local slang was rather shocked when I was told it was perfectly acceptable "to wear your thongs in the shower". A few raised eyebrows later, the misunderstanding became plain but still...
I know it's a silly username. If you've met me, I probably introduced myself as Josh...
