Private Pilot Flight Training, Lesson #23: Cross-Country Flight KTMB-KFMY-KAPF-KTMB

Working towards obtaining my private pilot license.
This is my twenty third training lesson flight (3.2 Hobbs Hour Today, 29.7 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 (KTMB).

Today's flight:

– 200nm flight with my instructor
– Filling/Opening/Closing Flight Plan
– Requesting Flight Following
– Instrument flying while under the hood

Normally, I like to share my video in their raw state; nothing edited out.
However, since this flight was 2-3 hours long, it would yield a very large video.
I've decided to therefore compress the flights where nothing of importance occurs.

The GPS Track is still available, at Gps4Sport.com, for replay but will not be synchronized to the video.
The link is provide further below.

* Note: I've removed all the pre-flight checklists since that's always the same.
