I’m on a solo cross country in an older PA28 with constant speed prop.
(most of my time is in newer fuel injected planes with fixed pitch props)

A few small mistakes that go unnoticed, can lead to a tragedy!

This video follows along as I am less than perfect with my check list usage, and fail to recognize that a potential accident chain is forming.
I need to be more vigilant in recognizing and breaking the pattern when it starts to happen.
I get away with it in this case, but the lesson is not lost on me.

It also doesn’t help that I am relatively low time with Pipers and constant speed props in general.

DISCLAIMER: I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial.I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share.Feed back is invited; however, please keep it positive
