New Ride

Postby foresterpoole » Thu Jan 17, 2019 1:47 pm

Sunset over the Red River and flooding near Shreveport and a sunrise shot of the Tecnam... Two photos were from a 172 passenger (in case you can't place the wing strut, LOL), I was concentrating on flying, don't worry...

"Gear down and locked - three green."

I made my students touch the green lights, not just say the words. I still use "GUMPPP" on final, even in an LSA.

More like the Arrow is costing an outrageous fortune and my wife is going to put me in a sling if I keep spending money like this! :lol: Really though It's great fun and I enjoy the flight time immensely.

I also was taught to touch the lights three times, once on downwind, once on base and then on final. No touch and verbal confirmation each time means an immediate go around by the instructor.
