Flight Lessons: Back to Agua Dulce

I was scheduled to do another cross-country solo today. Unfortunately, the entire coastline was overcast, so there was no way I could make the flight. So, instead my instructor took me above the clouds and I flew us to Agua Dulce where it was clear. We practiced soft field take offs and short field landings. I think I did one of each okay.

I tried a short field landing when we got back to Santa Monica and it seemed to work out really well. I didn’t quite hit the numbers, but we did stop very quickly. Now that I know what a good short field landing feels like, hopefully I’ll be able to replicate it more easily in the future.
