🛫 First Time Piloting in Real Life

My first piloting of an aircraft is in the log books! It was tons of fun—very short flight, but tons of fun. I got to taxi, take-off, climb, cruise, fly into the arrival pattern, fly the approach and descent…but the instructor landed it, as there was an American Airlines 737-800 landing next to us on a parallel runway.

Needless to say, but MSFS has me helped tremendously!

I’m looking forward to my journey to get my Private Pilot License…which starts Wednesday (in the classroom) and then another flight on Saturday.

Would you like to see where I flew, along with all the details along the way (speed, altitude, etc.)? Check out the links below…

Go boy! Congratulations to you sir. That is so awesome. Trying to figure out how to make that happen in my own life. I just need to finish ground school and for that I need a little time. But that is so awesome man. Happy landings.

Yes congrats!! Live super close to KSNA about 5 min away. I was going to train there but found a much better deal flying out of Long Beach and gotten my PPL with Instrument from there. Needless to say, it is going to be a fun and exciting journey for you, keep working hard at it and never give up! Glad to see other members from the KSNA area!
