The New Pilot PodBlog Ep #04 - The Scenic Route

In this episode I discuss another flight with Joey. How fuel flowing from a wing tip is not a bad thing, alternative plans and how to get flight following on a sight-seeing flight.

I also get caught by my instructor when I make a non-standard departure.

Please join me as I take you on another fun flight where I learn a few things by myself and with the help of others.

  1. Rob,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts about being a new pilot! I'm about 25 hours in to my Private Pilot training and am just about to solo. For Christmas my wife got me 1/4 share in a 1978 172N, so I'm pretty excited to finish my training in my own plane! I'll actually be saving money owning than renting a 172 at $140 an hour!!
    I'll definitely be goal setting once I have my ticket, thank you for the encouragement and your candid thoughts on being a pilot!
    Merry Christmas,
