Matthew had his first long cross-country flight this week. His first stop was at the Marquette airport where he had to do a few take-offs and landings. On arrival, he was in a landing pattern with the army helicopter you see at the right. The helicopter got to land first :) (His plane is the little one to the right of the fuel truck.) He also got to wait for the army guys to leave. Apparently Army trumps Piper :)
Bye bye Army and on to Escanaba :)
It was a beautiful day to fly!
After his stop in Escanaba, it was
time to head home.
It was a beautiful landing and a great relief to the mom :)
I'll call your attention to the fact that we now have
real leaves on the trees!!!
This is still such a fun sight to see...
…he parked the plane for fueling, hopped out and….
…registered his flight.
He is now at the half-way point in his training.
Exciting times ;)
