Actual IMC flight lesson in a Cessna 172R
Watch in HD!
Well, it’s official – I have started IFR training – I am saying it out loud!
So I guess that means I need to finish and get the rating!
I quietly started mid 2013, after over 15 years of happily (blissfully) being a VFR only guy flying on nice weekends for fun, while talking myself out of the need for IFR.
And it is true – I don’t “need” it… But there is no doubt about the huge safety margin it adds to get IFR training.
Math is a huge weakness for me, I fly for un, never plan to go commercial, and I never imagined I’d go as far as IFR training…
My hope is to maintain the rating, and continue to slowly practice and build experience slowly.
But rest assured, I won’t be going solo and shooting approaches to minimums any time soon.
For now, enjoy the view from my first flight into IMC – this lesson was doing holds and approaches at about the about half way point into my IFR training.
Happy new year everyone!
have a safe 2014, and keep the shiny side up.
