|Cub on final for Rwy 26 at IZA|
I'll soon be due for a flight review, and I'm planning to satisfy that requirement by (hopefully) earning my Commercial Pilot certificate. For the past few weeks I have been working with an excellent flight instructor to prepare for the FAA practical test. I am in the midst of studying for the written test, which I will take this Wednesday. My IACRA login thankfully still works, and now I have a bunch of logbook totaling to do.
Most of my recent flying has been in aircraft with very few instruments--gliders and aerobatic airplanes--and I'm surprised how much written test material I'd forgotten because I hadn't used it. I needed to re-learn the method to intercept NDB station bearings, how to read an RMI, compass acceleration errors, and IFR currency requirements, to name a few. The only required instrument in the Schweizer 2-33A that I am now flying is an airspeed indicator!
