Making hay while the sun shines, I'm off to take Penny back to KCNI, even though I don't have a GPS on board. I'll just have to have my mental picture of this flight :-)
I wanted to stay over Laura instead of outrunning her, so I not only slowed way down but also threw in a couple of 360s which would have probably been really fun to see. Ah, well. I even spotted her once, I think, but it's challenging to both fly and look, especially wne I was off to her left which put her over on my right.
Speaking of challenging... It's obviously been a while since I've done turns around a point and other ground-reference maneuvers, too. There was no problem, and the flight was smooth, but nonetheless as I was making my circles I really felt like I needed to concentrate. Hey, I used to do these things in my sleep; now I can't even remember quite how I set 'em up! I really need to get this maneuvers list going so tha tI can remind myself of what I haven't done in a while...
I decided to fly straight in after hearing the last person leave the pattern long before I was in the neighborhood. At least I'm practiced at different entries, right? After what I must say was a nice landing, it was off to fuel and then home to our new parking spot up at the terminal; yay!
