(summarizing) It does sound awkward, but it makes sense…log 250 hours…10
of which are on proficiency areas…5 of which are at night
Thanks, Brian, you pointed out what I missed. I still think the English is
awkward, and it doesn’t call the solo work “training” (cf the Private
requirement), but I get it. So, last night, I had a fine time preflighting,
taking off, landing (regular and short-field techniques), navigating, and
post-flighting, to commercial standards. The flying bit was nice too.
When I turned base back home, a rag that was tucked up by the left side
airvent came loose and dangled down. In my peripheral vision, my first
impression was that of a hand coming through the vent, causing a certain
adrenaline rush. My second thought was “d***, I won’t be able to log solo”.
To Bob: don’t be so unkind. There are others around who try to compare what
the FARs say with what they mean, even if we all know what they mean. Or am
I coming across like Steve “315 degree downwind entry” McNicoll?
