Solo Endorsement

Whee! I have my complete solo endorsement now. I can now rent the plane any time it is available (versus when both the plane and the instructor are available), and go practice at my home and neighbor airports (SAC and F72). Someone better warn the birds at Franklin… and tell’em I own that airport now!

(Just kidding. Scuttlebutt says that the recent air force C5 transport went down, due to a flock of birds taking out an engine, and another engine failed on top of that..)

Today’s other fun was a taste of cross country, using radio navigation aids (okay, I’m spoiled with GPS, but this isn’t too bad), and more practice with steep turns and emergencies.
