XXX Flight: 2011-0626-1 in N30EF (C172) for $
KGVL - KGVL - KLZU (flying time 0:38)
Flight Notes:
Flying the second half of trying out a 172 of which we might buy 1/4. It was fun to try to fly one again after forever away :-) but it came back quickly. (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
Took a quick turn around the pattern to get to know her. Amazing that I needed not only just tiny right rudder on departure but in fact *left* rudder once we were airborne! How weird :-) Laura's commentary on large inputs was accurate, but it was more responsive than the usual luxury-recliner-sedan feel. I particularly noticed that just a nudge on the trim wheel was immediately felt; another difference from BlueBird, but something I think I recall from our training in Louie. Not a bad landing, either, settling down OK but floating and missing the flare in ground effect. (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

From KGVL (Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport) 2011-06-26 16:31:44 to KLZU (Gwinnett County Airport - Briscoe Field) 2011-06-26 17:02:48 [00:31:06] with 1 day and 0 night landings.
David Thorburn-Gundlach (pilot-R) / Eric Washburn (copilot) / Laura Thorburn-Gundlach (passenger) /
Leg Notes:
Next to do some steep circles and stalls on the way back to LZU -- but then changed to just getting there because it was a warm and bumpy day. Ah, well; it was enough to feel the flying. Had some fun trying to read the GPS and figure out where we're going; believe it from the track or not, that was supposed to be directly there :-) Finally got pointed sort of in the right direction, went around Winder (so THAT's where that is!), and then just headed to Lawrenceville visually :-)
A bit more bounce and fluff on this landing, but I think that that's absolutely a matter of practice rather than an issue with the plane. No creaks, rattles, or bumps to make me think she'll drop pieces behind us, and a nice and solid feel. Definitely want to follow up on those avionics squawks, though, as well as other issues as part of a pre-buy inspection.
