It was great to be able to spend entire lessons on landings. I wasn’t able to do that at Vero. We pretty much had to follow a syllabus, which meant completing a checklist of a variety of maneuvers each time. When it came time to do landings, we were only allowed to do three touch and goes at Sebastian, our usual practice airport, due to noise abatement requirements. On top of that, we were lucky if we could even do the three thanks to times when there was a continuous parade of airplanes in the pattern. And Vero was usually so busy we couldn’t spend a lot of time there either. In contrast, at Orlando-Apopka, I can spend an entire lesson doing touch and goes if Adam chooses! This is partly because it’s the more flexible Part 61 training, and because the airport is in less crowded airspace. After spending my last two lessons entirely on practicing touch and goes, I’m pretty much on my own and now, though I still have to work on polishing things up (staying on the center line, touch down, etc).
