I have run into my first, and only real road block as a student pilot: landings. In my opinion, this is the hardest part of the flying so far. But they are necessary to solo...which I really want to do soon since I just turned 16!
What happened was I booked a new instructor because my regular was full for almost two weeks straight. This new instructor, Jon, asked what I needed to work on. So I explained to him that I pretty much had the traffic patterns down pat, but my landings needed help. I went up with him and he showed my a different way of landing. And this worked for me!
So when the next lesson came around with my regular instructor, Michal, I informed her of my new learnings. But when I tried to show her...it didn't turn out as planned. They were still pretty bouncy, which is not good, and not safe enough to allow me to solo. So after numerous touch and goes, I became pretty frustrated. Michal was great because she told me all of the things I was doing right, and broke down the specifics that I needed to work on, which didn't turn out to be that much. This was a set back for me since I still need to continue going up with her reviewing the basics, until my landings improve more.
BUT thats okay! I am willing to practice practice practice so I can perfect my landings and make the best of my soloing, which will be one of the most exciting days of my life. Practice is all it takes to understand the basic concepts of flying, and I love practicing this in particular.
So basically what I'm trying to say is, frustrations may arise but DON'T GIVE UP! Don't ever give up because one day everything is going to click and it will all be worth it in the end.
