I showed up at the flight center for my first lesson. Did some ground school and then went out to the plane. Did the pre-flight and the cockpit checklists and was all ready to go. Turned the key and NADA. Welcome to the wonderful world of airplanes. Rescheduled for Saturday. This was a Club plane. I’m a little concerned that the aircraft was on the flight line and that the dead battery wasn’t fixed, but I’ll reserve judgement until I’ve had more time in the club.
