Here’s a quick video I put together from my Practice Landings during my lesson last week. This is the first time that I have at the camera facing me and there’s a reason for this. I have come to the realization that I might be trying too hard to be too perfect too soon. Aviation isn’t about being perfect, it’s about doing the best that we can do and to always be learning. I wanted to see how hard I concentrate and perhaps “beat myself up” versus how much fun I was actually having.
The original footage for this video clocks in at an hour and includes seven landings. This version is just to give the viewer a sense of what I’m doing up there during my lesson. You even get to see me smile a few times. I was happy to see myself smile while flying.
That’s why I’m up there to begin with!
