The past few weeks have been stressful and not very much fun. I haven't been sleeping well as a result and have been worrying constantly about what the future has in store for me.
But when life hands you lemons...go flying!
We picked the airplane up today from maintenance. This same flight was attempted last Friday (to return My Baby to Sky Harbor after maintenance was finished), only to have something else break on our preflight after our maintenance test flight. Does this airplane just have a crush on one of the mechanics...and I don't know about it?
Today, we got to try it again. Luckily, everything worked properly. And we stayed in the pattern at Willy Gateway to practice some landings...just for fun! I didn't get pictures of that since I was busy flying a simulated engine-out landing in a Beechjet. You can do fun things like that with no passengers on board!
Change is in the air, and I can hardly wait for this stress to be over. In the meantime, flying today felt great.
When isn't flying the perfect anecdote for every little problem?!
