Flight: 2010-0203-1 in N37148 (BlueBird) for $
KCNI - KRYY (flying time 0:24)
A quick hop over to KRYY to have H&L and AvWest look at a few things after our attitude indicator gyro apparently ate itself. Dang.
Rang up flight following not only because it's good and good practice but so that Laura, pacing me in the car, could listen in (well, to my half, anyway) on the handheld. She had me on 47A CTAF, with Atlanta, and then to the KRYY tower. Fun!

It almost feels like I'm getting the hang of this flying thing. I just prepped, checked, jumped in, and went! :-)
I played with lean and *really* pulled it back before the cough. We probably have not been leaning nearly as much as we could! Next to try a few trips at reduced throttle, too, and really see how low we can get our fuel burn...
I was moving so fast that I asked for a heading too late and actually had to turn east of south. Wow. In my defense, though, if they had been using 9 instead of 27 it wouldn't have been quite so much...
The tower gave me clearance to turn a 270 and land if I could get down from my altitude, so I pulled her around and hit Vne for fun. Woo hoo! That should be a cool picture with some quick color change :-)
