It's time for my annual year in review and a look forward to some new goals for 2011. Here are the goals I set back in January.
2010 in Review
Hours: 169.4 Total flight hours 543
Ratings: Instrument checkride passed!!! August 19, 2010
Airports (new): KFCI, 9N3, KVVS, KMGY, 40I, KEDE, KACY, KOFP, KMFV
States (new): Ohio
Aircraft: I got to fly a Stearman!! Thanks Steve!
Medical: Hip doing great, now I need to shed some pounds.
Flights: Dayton Ohio trip with Rob to visit Steve and a chance to fly a Stearman. Mary and I did our first dog rescue flight for the Mid-Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue (MAESSR) to Hanover, VA.
Notes: I did get the M1 Loran out and the garmin 496 installed this year, it makes flying so much safer having wx and GPS back up.
Hours: At least 150 and I hope to make total time of 700 hours
Ratings: Commercial and add a tailwheel endorsement
Airports: As many as possible. I would like to visit Jeff out in Champaign, IL (KCMI). I would love to finally land on grass too.
States: As many as possible.
Flights: Mary and I want to fly to the Florida Keys, and a visit to my brother and sister-in-laws new home in Jupiter Florida. Mackinac Island is very high on the list along with a weekend get-away back to Niagra Falls. Nashville is still high on the list too. So many places, so little time.
Aircraft Upgrades: Get the autopilot fixed! During this years annual Cecil Aero pulled the roll servo and Penn Avionics agreed to bench test it, it was working fine. By having the servo checked while the floor was opened up saved many $$$.
