On Saturday we drove to KRYN Ryan Airfield, on the southwest side of the city, to look into flight opportunities. As I mentioned last week, I haven’t flown since our move to Tucson and since Monsoon Season has seemingly come to an end, it’s time to take advantage of the cooler weather and get back in the air.
Today I confirmed a flight for Saturday. I’ll be going up with an instructor in a 1969 Piper Cherokee 140. It’s just a couple of years newer than the airplane I learned to fly in and I’m looking forward to “getting back to my roots”, so to speak.
Flying in the desert will be different than flying in the northeast or midwest. I’m looking forward to tackling the new challenges this weekend.
