Spring Flying

I am not sure if all pilots associate flying with the spring or if I just do it because that is when I started learning to fly last year. But, Spring is a great time to fly.

For the past few months I have not flown as much. It just is not as much fun to pre-flight a plane in the dark and the cold not to mention it has been cloudy and overcast for much of the winter. But, with the time change behind us providing more evening light combined with warmer weather I am itching to get back out to the airport and in the air.

The weather looks to be nice this weekend so I plan on reserving a Cessna 152 or 172 on Saturday or Sunday. The Katana I flew recently although more sporty does not allow you to open the windows and I am looking forward to getting up in the air and letting some cool spring air float through the cabin.

Hmm.. I never thought of opening windows in a plane before. I guess that's what happens when you've only flown on commercial airliners.

Hope spring is good for you guys, we're already moving toward summer with temps in the upper 80's this week.

Maybe you can go up on Saturday and Sunday to make up for lost flight hours! Enjoy the breeze in your hair!!
