Valley Rally

I went flying this afternoon. I was also supposed to go last night but it was too windy for the little planes we fly so it had to wait for another night. (which I'm excited for) Today we did we the school calls the valley rally where basically you fly at a lot of different airports all over the valley right after one another. It helped me learn how to fly and talk on the radio and listen to two channels at the same time. It was crazy but so much fun. We started at Gateway then flew to Chandler did a touch-n-go then call Sky Harbor to fly over in their airspace. Then went to Deer Valley, Scottsdale, and Falcon (they were nice there, not so much at Scottsdale) and did touch-n-gos there too. then came back to Gateway. I loved seeing the city like that and all the different airports. We are probably going to do the flight again on monday to get some more practice in. and maybe change it up a bit. we'll see.

Sounds like fun! Are the runways all different directions or do they mostly go east/west or north/south?

My IFR story

An ifr story I finally did it this December I passed my instrument rating so I’m now a commercial land and sea instrument rated pilot single engine. It definitely took a long time to do I started instrument flying about 10 years ago. It wasn’t that I never wanted to get my instrument rating it’s that I ran out of money. I got my private pilots certificate in the fall of 2008 in the spring of the year I got married. I was going to Arizona State with ambitions to become a commercial pilot. By the time I got my private license the financial recession that happened that year in the next few years after was starting to manifest itself. I continued flight training seeing all my instructors leave for the airlines and then less than a year later come back to CFIs. By the end of the spring of 2009 I had changed my major to aviation management degree and decided to pursue aviation using part 61 I saw that I needed to pinch every penny that I could I still had ambitions to become an airline p
