One of my coworkers’ retorts to our mechanic getting angry that I made an emergency landing from the traffic pattern when my engine started running extremely rough at 700 feet AGL on the upwind. He complained I “made a scene with all of those fire trucks.” This coming from the same guy who once scolded me for ending a flight when I noticed the oil pressure gauge reading zero. “It’s just indication, go fly.”Anyway, this gave me a good laugh.

"Tell you all my memories and you will tell me yours. The colors of my favorite trees before the winter’s war, the reasons you and me should talk about the great unknown without the distance in between and all the obstacles we’ve known…"

It’s still hard to believe this is the work of one of my former coworkers. I can’t get enough of this song, even after listening to it pretty much non stop since it came out last year.

Flew 800 miles yesterday

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…

I’m proud to say that after much hard work I’ve reached my 1000th flight hour! Two thirds of the way there. #cfi #flightinstructor #cessna #piper
