Since I last posted, I've had a few more lessons, all training for flying in the circuit. Since I've now described the circuits itself in great detail (maybe too much?), I'm going to change focus a little. Instead of trying to tell the narrative of each lesson, I'll write some shorter posts, each about one aspect of what I'm learning. I'll start with something I've noticed a lot more while hanging around the airport: traffic.
Properly, the next exercise after stalls should be incipient spins, but when the time came, the wind was 5 knots straight down the runway, ideal weather for circuit training, so my instructor suggested I should start learning to land, and come back to stalls another day.
