My last two lessons were in preparation for the flight test. T took me through a review of all of the maneuvers that were required for the flight test and made sure that I could perform them proficiently. We did stalls — power on and off — steep turns, S-turns across a road, turns about a point, short-field and soft-field landings and takeoffs, and a little bit of simulated instrument flight. We also spent some time talking about the flight testing procedure and about what I should expect things to be like after getting my private pilot’s license. T encouraged me that he would not have approved me for the test if he didn’t think I were capable and a safe pilot.
