Got back in the left seat again today, with Charlotte on my right. The weather was perfect for flying, if a little hot. My brain was feeling sluggish at first, not wanting to remember all the pre checks but we kicked it into gear and had a good lesson.
Still hanging out in the circuit, which is obviously something I need to do until my landings are down. Today felt a lot closer than last week's mash up. I actually did 4 or 5 passable landings in the 0.7 hrs we flew. On a couple of them, Charlotte didn't say anything, so I know it was actually me and my decision making getting us down.
Flying's meant to be a fun hobby for me, not something to stress over or feel bad about. Luckily, my navigation exam has been put off until the New Year and today I knew all I had to do was better than last week so I've come out feeling in a much better head space about flying than I did after my last lesson.
