Roger,

Hang in there. I began my cross-country solos in a January. It took me more than a month to get the first one in, from BED to ORH (Worcester, MA) a distance of maybe 30 NM. I planned it over and over again because it was either low overcast and snowing or severe clear but blowing like crazy. By the time I did it, I knew the parameters, checkpoints and all by memory.

The day I was supposed to do my Private Pilot checkride it was completely cloudless, but being August it was very hot and hazy with vis. about 4 miles in haze. I'd never done a cross-country in less than 8 miles vis. so I had to push it back a few days.

Ah, the delights of flying. "Time to spare, go by air". <G>

Anne

Hi Anne,

Thank you for sharing your experience. Yesterday the weather wasnít that great but I finished almost all the requirement with my instructor. The only one he said we need to practice is Emergency landings. We couldnít do it because the ceiling was too low and my instructor wanted to climb to at least 5000 ft for this one for some reason.

My cross country solo will be from 0W3 to OXB (Ocean City) and if the weather allows I will stop at GED (Georgetown) since I was told they have a good restaurant and facilities. Now, like you said I am depending on the weather conditions. Itís going to be fun.

Thanks,

Roger

One other real effective way to get this down is to get r e l a x e d and enjoy what you are doing. All the advice on AVSIG is good. It WILL come to you. Use your elevator trim but remember that in a go-around you'll have to trim the nose down smartly.

Roger must have figured it out - according to the FAA airman database, one Roger Ferrer was issued an ATP in April 2016. :-)

Agreed!!!

I've found a small percentage of ATP's that still could use a tail dragged checkout.
