I hadn't been flying much (make that at all) for a while since it was snowboarding season, and weather pretty much sucked every weekend (well, good for snowboarding, but bad for flying)
Today, I finally went for a practise/refresher flight and boy was I rusty... Actually my landings were pretty good, but the procedures, checklists and all were tough. If it weren't for the checklist, I would most likely have been screwed.
I went to livermore (KLVK) for multiple kinds of take offs and landings in a high performance plane (172XP), and things went mostly ok, I just could tell the practise was well needed.
Oh, the cool thing is that thanks to my handheld GPS, I can record the flight, and replay it later
Oh, and here are my flight stats to this day:
Flight Hours: 153.4
High Perf Aircraft Hours: 25.8
Complex Aircraft Hours: 8.1
Night Hours: 8.1
Night Landings: 21
