Working towards obtaining my private pilot license.
This is my twentieth training lesson flight (2.0 Hobbs Hour Today, 23.9 Total Hours) with 424 Aviation Inc, in Miami, FL.
My certified flight instructor (CFI) is Joe Ferrera. The airplane used was a Cessna 172R, with tail number N994WW, out of Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport ().

Today's lesson involved:

– Cross-Country Flight
– VFR Navigation

*** THIS IS THE RAW FOOTAGE. I have only edited out the pre-flight check. ***
I've left the video untouch so that it can be played in sync with the GPS Track replay that can be found at Gps4Sport.com.
