Well not a whole lot to tell, but I have been studying hard trying to be as prepared as possible for my first lesson of my multi-engine rating. And for those of you that have watched any King Schools DVD’s (or VHS’s), I’m getting to that point where if I hear Martha say “Stay out of the trees” one more time, I’m going to punch something. I’ve started to see it coming and quickly hit the next chaper button on my dvd player…hehe
On the time building side of things, I’m still trying to get more total time. But holy crap, the weather here has just been terrible. I flew down to Corvallis a while back and was planning on checking the VOR instruments and I couldn’t find the VOR ground checkpoint. The A/FD said it was located on the south side of the terminal ramp. Well it was night time and I couldn’t find the darn thing. I wish they would put the location on the airport diagram. Anyway, after taxiing around at night looking for the thing, I decided just to head back to Salem and do an airborne check, checking the two VOR’s against each other. The problem with that is I think they are BOTH a little off.
Anyway, I’m rambling…I’m just waiting for a little better weather and thought I would update you all on the happenings, or lack thereof.
