I have come into terms with the advice our mentors give everyday day that one should go for the Intro Flight before committing to throw that huge amount of money into it. Our desire may push us with great feelings of doing it but we can never know if we can really do it until we give it a shot.
I took my Intro Flight Lesson today with ATP at their New York Long Island site.With the guidance of the Instructor, i took off smoothly but during the initial climb out i felt like the nose was climbing too high and may flip over so i told told him to take controls immediately. I didn’t want to make any mistake.. Afterwards, he gave me back the controls at level flight after further explanation of some principles and through his guidance, i made some climbs, descents and turns that were amazing.
At a point in time when my misconceptions were cleared, i felt like i was driving a car on a highway and straight and level flight felt smoothy like sitting in my living room. He wanted me to land it but due to strong winds, he did it at the end. It was great fun for the hour long flight and i can’t wait to get all my stuff done to get started.
I wish all my fellow aspirants who have never tried it to do so.
Thanks a lot to Jonathan, my instructor for your patience and high level of experience and professionalism. You will see me at training in a short time.
