rotor91 Posted September 14, 2006 Report Share Posted September 14, 2006 I know I know.....just a sad state of affairs....but I finally went up! Got the bug back, and I'm working on my CFI book right now. Finally got a 141 sylabus to help me out too. Went over to Compton airport here in So Cal. They want RW to do approaches to 25R, AND do left traffic!! Fortunately there were no FW traffic, but that's just an accident waiting to happen! It's uncontrolled too! BUT, you can do 180 auto's to 25L....go figure! My first auto in almost a year, dead nuts to the numbers! Same for the 180's.....MAN....it felt good! Went out to San Pedro to Berth 300(3 football fields put together...just dirt though). Came in over the spot at 1900 AGL at 60 kts, CFI announces "engine failure", and chops it on me, now I'm doing a 180 auto to downwind, then 180 auto to final, to the spot! AWESOME! The CFI made a comment of "Man you really missed doing this, huh?" DAMN SKIPPY I DO MISS THIS! BTW....the long story short, my wife tried to get a gift certificate at my school,(for my B-Day) which they couldn't find. She talked to the owner on the phone, but she couldn't wait til he got there, she had to leave.....long story short, yeah right....so a few days go by, and the owner calls me.....wanted to wish me a belated B-Day.....and said that he would like give a free hour as a present.......WHAT.....I repeated that he was giving me a free hour of flight time.....he said yes....I asked are you F'n kidding me??....he said NO! Can you believe that? I was so bowled over......that says a lot out a school/company.....he said he likes to treat his students well! And I still have $ the wife gave me too!! I've never had ANY school give me that! I was quite impressed! Student then employee....for a qutie a long time!! CheersR91 Sorry for the rambling! Had diarhea of the mouth today!
