I finally got that long cross country I’ve been wanting to do, and what a great experience it was!
Woke up at 4:45 on Tuesday morning, caught the LIRR to go meet my student, who then took me to LGA for a flight to Chicago, then Peoria, IL. From there we were driven to Galesburg (GBG) IL and met my flight school’s newest plane, N833SB, a 2001 C-172SP. After an early start the next day we flew from GBG to Port Clinton, OH (KPCW), then from Port Clinton to Williamsport, PA (KIPT) and then directly back to Islip. By the end of the day we clocked in at 8.0 hours exactly, and 3.5 hours of actual instrument. Here are some pictures from the flight:

I’ll happily swap this 172 for that DC-3…
