Judgement DayMy practical test is tomorrow, if it doesn't get cancelled due to weather.
I flew at night tonight for the first time in about a year. I totally forgot just how awesome the night is from the air. I don't know exactly why I love flying at night, I just always have. I love the blue taxiway lights and seeing the runway lit up right in front of me. Sure, flying at night is a lot harder, but it worth it. One thing I have to do while training is have the instructor take the controls as you close your eyes, and he will roll the plane around to an unusual attitude. Then of course, you have to open your eyes and see how quickly you can react. Well we did it tonight and when I opened my eyes we were about 1000 feet above KSU pointed down directly at it. It was awesome! There are so many lights around that school, and I could see everything moving all at once. It was the kind of sight that reminds me why I am working so hard to do exactly what I want to do with my life. For the last year or so, flying has seemed like a chore. Something I knew I had to do to move forward, but I just didn't feel into it like I used to. I even let some doubts into my mind. Tonight, I felt like I belong in the air again. I think I finally got it again. I think I am finally ready.
