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

Just got back from Maine after a great day of flying the Twin Comanche. Even got some actual IFR time too. #piper #pa39

Soft field takeoffs and landings at Bayport Aerodrome! Finally got to fly a tricycle gear airplane on a soft field. So much fun #cessna #skyhawk #172 #cfi
