First “Date Flight” of 2010

Category: RamblingsDaniel @ 5:51 am

This past Friday, my wife and I had our first “Date Flight” of 2010.  We went to our usual fly-in restaurant destination, Pilot Pete’s restaurant, at Schaumburg Regional Airport (06C).  The place was hopping that day and we had to wait almost an hour for a table.  As usual, though, the food was well worth the wait.  Skies were gorgeous and very clear for our quick journey.  The only interesting portion of the flight was a brush fire in Zion, Illinois (rough location), causing some slight smoke/haze, but that nice wood-burning smell was actually a pleasant scent as we flew.  My landings were smooth because of my recent practice just a few weeks ago.  I’m glad I had that practice, because I’m sure my wife wouldn’t have liked our first flight of this year to include bumpy/scary landings.

This flight I logged 1.1 hours of PIC flight time.

    Just found your blog and enjoying it. You mention flying over Zion. I was born in Waukegan and spent my elementary school years in Zion. Goodness – all the memories. Your blog is now book marked and I’ll keep checking in to see what new adventures you’re in to. Blue skies and fly safe.
