Well that wasn't how it was supposed to work. Got to the airport, weather was a bit windy, Mark decided to go up for a demonstration flight. I did the preflight and as I was pulling myself up to dip the fuel tank on the left wing, I dislocated my right shoulder. Drove myself to the hospital and got it fixed up. A few weeks of recovery now.
Got as far as completing the preflight before cancelling because of a fast approaching storm.
Flight cancelled for gusty wind conditions.
Last minute storm mean no flight tonight.
Lousy weather means another cancelled flight.
Flight cancelled for wind again. Ground school was theory of flight and air law, part 2 of each.
Next flight attempt, Monday June 16th.
Took the day off work today for a few reasons, not the least of which was to commemorate by 48th birthday. I had my aviation medical scheduled for today, I decided to pursue the certificate early because of some health complications that I have that may impact my being able to get the certificate. No category 3 medical certificate, no Private Pilot's License. The exam and the required ECG are done, need to come back next week to get eyes checked with my glasses as I only had my contacts in today.
I had a flight scheduled for 5pm, but, once again, too windy. Ground school kicked off tonight, only 3 of us in the class so it went very quickly. Theory of Flight and Air Law were the subjects.
Next flight scheduled for Thursday June 12th, but the forecast doesn't look good.
- Aviation Medical Exam: $150.00
- ECG: $57.60
- Ground School: $341.25
- Total cost to date: $968.80
Too windy to fly today. I went to the airport for the ground briefing for Flight Lesson 2 and rescheduled the flight for June 10th.
