New CFI insisted i do some grass, i was pretty hesitant but figured he knows this stuff better than me. So did it 4 times. I guess it didnt do too much for me The ground is pretty hard so i thought it felt more like a field than a runway. Was definitely worth it though, theres simulated and real. Definitely a good PPL experience. Afterwards we shot an approach with ILS. No, not trying to start IR before PPL. Actually wanted to verify all plane equipment was working (glidescope, marker lights). Was kinda neat doing a 12 mile arc into a long final with all the gadgets working.
