X-country solo



After like 3 months of study and practice. Finally, I did my solo x-country couple days ago.
Well, I really have to say, it's awesome!!

開始學飛行大概將近四個月左右了, 終於, 在二月初的時候完成了我的 x-country solo.
雖然說這原本是應該在一月底就要完成任務, 可是天公不作美, 天氣不好就不能飛.
其實這就是為什麼飛行員會說"Good Luck"的原因了.

因為天氣是你不能控制的因素, 所以哩, 除了多燒香拜佛之外,
要好天氣也就是靠 good luck 啦.

話說回來, x-country solo真的是一個很棒的經驗,
雖然說不是第一次做solo flight, 但是之前的solo多半就只是在做 traffic pattern,
就只是一直重複做 take off, upwind, x-sind, downwind, base, final, landing...
這感覺跟真正自由自在的飛行還是有差的
可是 x-country就不一樣啦, 起碼你要一個人飛至少兩小時, 到 50 nm外的機場
這才是真正自在的飛啊!!

雖然說南加州這邊大概一年有各三百天都是晴天
但是好死不死的這幾天就是那些陰天
搞的我的check ride得等到天氣好才能飛....
forecast說這禮拜到周末都是這樣的天氣....
Well.... all I can say and I wias for, it's only "Good Luck"
