One Student Pilot's Blog. . .


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

I've started a blog with my student-pilot experiences. I'm going pretty much lesson by lesson and informally trying to capture lessons learned, general observations, etc. If anyone's interested, check it out and I'd be interested in any feedback, advice, etc from students and grizzled old-timers alike.

 

One other reason for this post was to ask if any other student-pilots on this forum are tracking their experiences via the blog (I've seen some in the actual forums, but would be interested if there are running blogs that I could monitor for others just getting started like I am).

 

So, anyone else blogging their student time?

 

Thanks!

Kelly

Wow good job, your blog has great detail and I'm sure will be helpful to others. I've been blogging my Helicopter flight training since day one, but I havnt gone into the details of the lessons just pictures and updates check it out: http://helifool.blogspot.com/

 

 

Just checked it out! Cool pics (I need to do better about taking my camera with me when I go to the airport).

 

Ingar would be pushing it to climb into an R22. I got to say, he dwarfs that Schweizer too :D

 

Keep blogging, I'll definitely be checking for updates.

Great idea! Maybe I'll do that when I start my comm/inst soon. I enjoyed reading your blog, I was just there, and my frustrations are still fresh in my mind.

 

Thanks! It's definitely helping me review/rewind each lesson in my memory and solidify the lessons I learned. Call me a dork, but I even review my own blog like notes prior to each new lesson.

I write in my blog every couple of months. For the most part I just don't have the time to keep it up. Hopefully that will change one of these days.

 

Just got off work so, I'm machine gun posting here, but I did want to tell you that I actually ran across your blog initially and that was the inspiration for me to start my own.

 

I wasn't sure if you were still actively updating it (since it had been a while), but the info that is there was very enjoyable reading and good insight into the process you've gone through.

 

So, thank you for giving me the motivation to start my own blog.

blogging your training seems like a good idea. Ill start my training here in a few months, and i might just blog it as well. Great idea...

 

 

Might as well. For me it's a useful review from lesson to lesson and, maybe, will be helpful to other new, aspiring pilots. Worst case, it'll be fun to look back at it in a year and relive some of the initial thoughts and processes I'm going through now.

 

Good luck with your training.

I was keeping notes on all my flights, but the notebook was getting heavy, and I spilled a RedBull over it a few weeks ago. I've started putting my flight-notes in a new blog, but have more to enter to catch up to present time.

I never really intended for anyone else to read it, but maybe it will help. It's more of an online diary to remember my lessons/mistakes.

Great material from what I've read so far. Thanks for sharing the link.

 

I'm down in Myrtle Beach for the week and going a bit bonkers because I don't have any flight time this week (the CFI my instructor knew down here that I was going to fly with during the week let his CFI expire so, if anyone knows someone down here with an R22 and a CFI who wouldn't mind an hour or so lesson for a 13hr student-pilot, let me know).

 

Thanks to your blog, I now have a bit of reading material while I'm not on the beach :D

 

Thanks again,

Kelly

Good idea, when I started out I kept a journal and when my Flight Instructor found out I was doing that he explained it will prove very valuable when I start teaching students. It's a great window into the past that will help remind you what it was like to be a "newbie". :D
