Descent, eh? Yes, we know a thing or two about descent in this house.
It wasn’t the best weather for flying this weekend, but we went anyway. Not unsafe, of course, just not ideal mostly because of wind.
Beloved Husband has to keep current on his flight ratings, and he likes to practice landing in windy weather. I am happy to report he landed that plane like a pro in a 19 knot wind with gusts to 29.
Part of my job as co-pilot is to read the checklist off to the pilot. Every time I read an aviation checklist, I gain a new appreciation for how much goes on in my pilot’s head as he keeps that plane aloft.
One of the checklist categories is descent:
And speaking of descent, here we are this summer landing on a blazing hot day in North Carolina. This particular plane has an overly-sensitive stall warning.
The high pitched whine you hear is not me!! Really.
Thanks for flying with us,
