Landing practice before sunset

by Arno June. 02, 2017 1765 views

There's a saying in aviation: "take-offs are optional, landings are mandatory". In other words: what goes up, must come down.

The next intensive phase of training therefore aims at the approach and landing; up to 10 "touch-and-go" landings are done per one hour lesson, which means to land and immediately take-off again.

"Any landing you can walk away from is a good one" - so far 26 in 2 days!

Here's a few pictures of my reliable Cessna 152 and a beautiful sunset falling over the airfield... (no pictures while flying in this phase of training)
