One thing that threw me was the re join downwind. We approached from 4 miles out from the SE for RW 28. There was one other plane from the N about the same distance out. We were at 1200. Once we located our position to the airfield and made a radio call we were going to fly up parallel with downwind and make a 180 to join downwind and imeadiately turn left base.
My instructor wasn't expecting me to fly the perfect circuit but I was except I hadn't prepared the order of events in my mind and was behind the situation and aircraft until I was established on final and made my radio call.
The instruction on base from my instructor to 'start doing things' was just the prod i needed and thank fully I got most steps in the right order and made a half decent landing.
All in an hours cloudy flying..
Can't wait til next time but I'll have to as I'm off to Portugal for a couple of weeks.
