I got to meet one of our C150s, which was yet more fun and another tail number in my log book, and do foggle work on the way over. Alas, however, Dan's GPS subscription ran out unbeknownst to him, so we only have a screen shot of his round trip (the first half of which is this flight). Ah, well...
We did basic instrument practice, and he didn't catch me with a course change as I was approaching my altitude but later did watch me totally blow through a target radial. Gaaaah! :-) But overall it felt good; a little bit of wings-level wrestling but smooth and straight most of the time.
We had delightful fun with unusual attitudes and I absolutely fell for it when he screwed up my ears; I opened my eyes to find out in a tight descending turn. Woo hoo! :-) Note to self, though -- the FIRST thing to fix is the throttle, so check the airspeed indicator, and THEN move to the AI and figure out how to level. More fun flopping around and a demo or two with the hood off; I want to learn that routine and practice it on the novices ;-)
With foggle time over and our destination approaching, I realized I could show him the race track we had already discussed, so I went to go and find it. But it turns out I was headed straight for it originally and could have maintained my course! Well, all of those chicken houses look the same from above, right? :-/ So we enjoyed the sights and headed in to Pickens.
Landing was uneventful this time; yay. The plane behaved, the runway stayed put, and I made sure of a stabilized approach. Whew!
