First time in the left seat!

I was able to get behind the sticks of a BR350 today! What a kickass machine. Laid down some actual corduroy, and even bladed a little. I've got an enthusiastic and patient teacher, and that is making it a LOT of fun! Can't wait to get back out there and do it again :D

Got to solo this morning! We topped out at I think 9000 feet, and I was treated to an amazing view!!! This is a very cool job!

I believe that's Mt.Bachelor.

Damn, apparently that pic is from about 7300 ft. It felt like 73,000 feet!

And the mountain in the background is Jefferson. :oops:

Thanks for the reply. It does seem a little slow here, sometimes :D
