It's going pretty well! Ive gotten a lot of my ground work done and for the flying part I need to do reviews on my maneuvers then practice landings and should be ready to solo soon.

Welcome Christian! I am training as well. What have you found has been the most difficult part of training so far?

The Hardest thing for me is landings. When I'm on final I always seem to be low. The saying pitch for airspeed and power for altitude always confuses me sometime.

I hear you. I came in for a landing today and I was wondering what the guy holding short of the runway was thinking watching me squirrel around the approach as i came in to land.

I usually fly every weekend, Friday and Saturdays. I haven't gotten to fly for a couple weeks due to winds. I know I'm gonna be even rusty when I try to land again lol. Good news is I've gotten a lot of my ground work done.

Please post updates of how your training is going. There is a training section on the forum if you want to post there, and lots of good information there as well.
