Hey everyone out there, my name's Lauren and I'm a student pilot. As you can see by the photo above (when I was little), I've been flying, or "co-piloting," for many years. And let me tell you, I've loved every minute of it!
I just started student flying in my hometown of Frederick, Maryland about 3 weeks ago, but I've already had four lessons. The people at my flight school are incredible - I mean everyone, not just my personal instructor, so that always helps. Anyways, I was lucky enough to get a seriously amazing instructor. She is a great teacher, understanding and PATIENT! All of those traits make her awesome.
If you are interested in flying, the first step is to find a CFI, or Certified Flight Instructor, like I have. Find out more here on the Let's Go Flying site.
So far we've worked on many maneuvers, ranging from start-up, to slow flight, to landing. It is an insane feeling to be sitting behind the yoke knowing that it's "your airplane," as my instructor, Michal says. Everything done in that cockpit is controlled by you, possibly with a little help form the CFI :]
Well, this was just a little "intro blog." I'll be back in a little while to update after a few lessons and a vacation, so...
