9.3 hours as of today. Steep turns, stall practice and a pretty good landing according to my instructor. Progress check coming up and then on to landing practice/pattern work. Additionally - Spent my first half hour under the hood in a lovely pair of foggles. My instructor said I did really well. He also said that 'simulator guys' like me tend to do well in foggles because we're already used to staring at gauges on a computer screen. lol Then, he proceeded to have me make a couple of turns in opposite directions, had me take the glasses off and told me to find my way back to the airport.. Without GPS. I like this guy.
