Summer is approaching, which means thunderstorms will be on the horizon. I need two more hours to complete my flight training, and today those hours are going to fly by. As I arrived at the aerodrome, I noticed a dark cloud accompanied by thunder. I have to be back in Moscow soon, and extending my stay is not an option; therefore, all I can do is wait and hope for better weather.
Fortunately, that front didn’t last long, and I was able to complete my flight lessons. Although there was another cloud not too far from the aerodrome, it was far enough from us.
The sky was incredible, especially closer to sunset, and it was a pleasure to fly.
Today I flew at LKMO, which has a much better runway than LKRO, where I used to practice. Although the runway is shorter, it is much flatter and wider, with much clearer borders, and I don’t have to cut my downwind turn due to the village below. The wind also helped today, so my landings were better.
I completed all of the required flight hours for my PPL program today, so tomorrow I will be going to the CAA.
