CFI spins

Spun an aeronca chap Yesterday. It was amazing how in-tune the pilot can be with an aircraft. Every wind gust, buffet, thermal and a concert of pitch, power, and performance. Never flown with out a turn and ball cordinator, I always had trouble feeling slips and skids. But after just 8/10 of an hour that changed. There is definitly something to be said for learning and teaching in the small simple planes. Fun. Real grassroots aviation.

So everything is ready for the test. I just have to find a plane to take the test in since both the RGs I'm checked out in are under maintaince right now.
