Wallet Weight Watchers

Our wallet so speak lost weight this week. It was thin to begin with then we needed the magnetos to be serviced. It starts up fine now and has ample power. We knew airplane ownership would not be a cheap experience. 

It was Rusty's turn to do the test flight. He went up with a mechanic CFI this afternoon. We decided to share test flights equally. It's not quite Russian roulette, but the analogy has come to my mind. The next maintenance we'll need will be for the fuel injection system this Fall.   

I'm back on schedules for instrument practice lights again starting this weekend. I'm trying to stick with one CFI but that hasn't worked well due to schedules. I need something that communicates between flights what I've accomplished and what I need to focus on so that any CFI I fly with can know my progress. 

Memorial Service Day Trip

My mom's sister Blenda Fouse passed away this last Sunday peacefully at home. The memorial is tomorrow in Manhattan, KS- a mere 370 nautical miles away.

Guess what we're doing tomorrow.

Yep, you're right!

We're planning to fly 3 hours to be with family and pay respects. Then fly 3 hours back home. Just in time for the kids' bedtime.

Friday will be business as usual with work and kids at summer "camp".

Such is the life of a private pilot.

Stay tuned for details this weekend.
