My 1st flying lesson – Part 3

Now these are the final photos of my first flying lessons.

It all took about half an hour, but a time that was most memorable. Im grateful to have had this amazing experience and it’s great even just for the once.

I always wanted to see it from a pilots point of view and this was now fullfilled.

#9 Landing

"Any fool can fly!" Landing is the art of flying, my Dad said that to me. 

Here is the return to Ardmore airport, there is a cross wind so you come at an angle, I did not land the plane but the trainer landed us safely.
