Week 1: Evaluating Steve's flying skills
Anxiety that had been building ever since I put the dates on my calendar months ago!
We taxied for takeoff and, once airborne, turned to the south of Nampa for some airwork- stalls, slow flight, and flap exercises. Then it was on to a small airport that sits along the Snake River for some takeoffs and landings- shortfield, softfield, emergency, and normal. After this, it was back to Nampa- a total of almost 2 hours. In my estimation, I performed well but, as we refueled the aircraft at the pumps, I was in search of some comments. Scott had informed me that my evaluation would all be done at the end of the week- not after each flight. To my shagrin, he kept his word and didn't offer any feedback. This was a little disconcerting to me!
