Hey...! Congrat's! Congrat's! "A-hem" Congrat's!!!!
Now tell me, what did you really feel when you lifted off for the first time without the dead weight of you beloved know-it-all instructor??
I was singing, <praying> singing ... I was so excited that the dream was now in an instant becoming a living breathing reality that I almost lost it when my right passenger door popped open on base. My instructor got out and closed the door over the dangling seatbelt strap!!! Boy was that loud! <bang> <bang>.
I landed ... (my flight school mandated three "stop" and goes) reached over and closed the door and completed two more "stop" and goes. Training payed-off!
In the car, on the ride home (I cried) I admit it. Nothing compares to the reality of a fulfilled dream like flying! Never let the novelty wear-off, never ... Heh.....:-)
PP-ASEL <---- I will never get tired of typing that! <G>
I know this might sound crazy - but .....
I have been keeping two logbooks. One I call my "official" logbook and the other I call my "unofficial" logbook journal. The official logbook is the one that I have had all my instructors sign, endorse, etc. Then I copy these entries (word for word) into the unofficial logbook along with all my comments, reflections and learning experiences of any given flight. I'm a bit of a romantic I guess. I like to record everything from: "Wow, what a wonderful sunset" to "Sheeesh, next time I won't taxi to close to that 737."
The official logbook I keep with my flight bag or on my person whenever I fly and leave the other logbook behind. I keep my medical and pilot certificate tapped in my official logbook.
- Do I have to have my "official" logbook with me when I fly?
- And if I should ever loose the official logbook, would the unofficial second logbook be honored by the FAA?
I am a newly minted Private Pilot. I know this is a silly question, but... I have been flying a lot since my glorious passing of the checkride. I recently flew a 112 nm trip to Martha's Vineyard. I did not land at Martha's Vineyard - just a little sight-seeing. I then returned to my home base on Long Island. Can I log this time as Cross Country time??
Thanks in advance....:-)
