On January 31, I met back up with Richard to start getting checked-out in one of the Club’s Piper Cherokee’s. This plane is a 4-seater with a 160 hp engine. It outweighs a Cessna 152 by several hundred pounds. With this plane, I will be able to complete the training for my instrument rating and can carry the whole family or just larger passengers than the 152. The Cherokee is much more stable in the air than the 152 and was a joy to fly.
I am trying to clear up the time to attend Instrument Ground School on Monday nights, but that is dependent on school and work schedules. It is only offered once a year so I really don’t want to miss the opportunity.
