32.5 hours and counting! I'm getting there!

Since my last post, I have flown three more cross country flights; one from Provo (KPVU) to Richfield (KRIF) via REEKA, DTA, MLF, CDC and U13, a second from Provo to Cedar City (KCDC) with a route of Nephi (U14), DTA and MLF, and the third again to Cedar City along the same route.  The two flights to Cedar City differed in that I practiced touch and go’s at U14 and KDTA on the first and full stop landings on the second.  I now have 32.5 hours of the 40 needed to get my Private Pilot’s certificate.

I have enjoyed the flying time but I’m really looking forward to the time when I can take someone with me to share this adventure and these sights.  The western Utah desert is beautiful and there are some amazing sights.  I look forward to future flights further south and east around Moab, Canyon lands and also up north into Idaho.  Obtaining my Private Pilot’s certificate is now a goal in sight!
