The authorization for my medical arrived Friday, but I couldn't see the AME [Flight Surgeon, for those overseas] until Tuesday. Success!
I could see thunderstorms moving in as I drove from his office directly to the airport. The radar showed that the cells might pass to the west. Nope, that was wishful thinking. As I took the highway exit I drove right into the gust front with it gusty winds and blowing dust that made me fear for my car's paint. Nope, not tonight.
But I went out this morning and did steep turns, lazy 8s, and a few landings. All by myself.
The turns were easy for a glider pilot, and the Lazy 8s got better as I went along. What do you do to knock the rust off?
