Flight Lessons: touch-and-goes

Today we focused more on takeoffs and landings. I had one go around because I was two high, and a couple times we had to make full stops because there wasn’t enough runway left for another take off. Overall, I had a lot more fun than last time. The wind was a lot calmer, so that made everything a lot easier. My biggest problem is still landing and knowing when to pull up and by how much. I’m flying too fast in the downwind (the part of the pattern opposite the runway), and that’s making it hard to set up for a nice easy approach. With a little more work, I think I’ll start making nice landings on my own.
