pilot jargon
i had my first solo flight yesterday!

let me tell you, it was awesome. i had an absolute blast and will always remember it. they require us to fly for a certain amount of time, so after i got all my required landings out of the way i was just messing around. the best part was rolling in behind civilian airplanes and flipping my rudder shakers on (they make the plane vibrate, kinda like a machine-gun) while quoting various lines from top gun. made me feel like a real pilot. awesome.

i start aerobatic flying next, which is loops, barrel rolls, split-S, immelmans, etc, but today looks a little too cloudy for that so it'll have to wait for the time being.

kim leaves friday for her round-the-world vacation trip, ending up down here 16 days from now. can't wait. in the meantime i'll busy myself with flying and studying, and maybe some relaxing now and then.

Current Mood: highhigh
