Private Pilot Biennial Flight Review In Diamond DA-40 (2013)

No Comments

Here are a few highlights from my recent Private Pilot Biennial flight review. This was the first time using the FAA WINGS program which I would highly recommend to anyone continuing your flight training and to stay proficient. The minimum FAA requirements are 1 hour ground instruction and 1 hour flight instruction. Using the WINGS program you can work at your own pace and take the courses online (Free) until you meet your ground requirement. Then, all you need to do is the flight portion which in my case consisted of most all of the flight maneuvers you did on your Private checkride. We did: Slow flight, MCA turns, hood work simulating IMC, Stalls power on & off, engine out, soft short field landings, go arounds, unusual attitudes just to name a few.

First Solo Flight | Student Pilot | HD GoPro | Cockpit & Radio/Com Audio

No Comments

This was my first solo flight as a student pilot on 8-15-13. I've heard stories of instructors surprising the student with their first solo. This was planned. I knew I was coming to the airport to solo this day. (I was at 14 hrs). First we did 3 touch and goes in the pattern together.. I completely greased the last one.. Felt great! Then the training wheels came off (when I dropped Dennis off at the terminal).

I was nervous. I won't lie. It really was like the first time you take off on a bicycle when you're a little kid; when your parents let go of you.. you have fear at first.. then you realize "Hey, I got this!". I'll never ever forget this day.

Shot list:
Dual Landing: 00:10
First Solo Takeoff: 02:18
First Landing: 07:05
Second Landing: 08:18
Third Landing: 09:25

Thanks for watching!

BTW, I am a professional audio engineer. I pride myself in good audio mixes in my flight videos. There are probably easier ways of doing it, but i record the Com mix into my phone (using an ipad guitar input adapter) and line up with the video later.
