Photo of the Day: Pattern or practice area?

So, what’ll it be today? A trip or two (or 10) around the pattern, or a jaunt to the practice area to practice maneuvers? Maybe a little of both? If you’re flying solo, make sure you have a plan for your valuable Hobbs time. Don’t just fire up the airplane and start taxiing. Sure, all flight time is good time, but it’s also somewhat expensive time. So figure out what you’re going to do before you do it, and make your solo time count. Photo by Mike Fizer.—Jill W. Tallman

    every flight should include some “Brush up training” even if you have more hours than your logbook can hold. I have seen a lot of “sloppy circuit flying”. take a few minutes on the way back to the barn, pick an area and fly a few circuit shots . it may help you to sharpen your skills.
