Can't quite believe it, but I finally passed my skills test! (actually 31st July). 3 years, two long breaks (one 8-month intentional to renovate the new house - still not complete!), one 8-month enforced due weather then Covid, but finally I got there. Very happy indeed!
First flight post-test today - hot, but all went excellently, just a local navex and a few stalls, steep turns etc to practise. Very hazy, nice and smooth above the inversion.
Was very strange not to have someone else rabbiting at me, or deciding route - the freedom of choosing what you want to do is, well, very liberating...
SkyDemon is ace, too.
Not that I'm a frequent poster, but guess I'm not allowed to post on this board any longer
Cheers and best of luck to all those getting close - it will happen!
