Cross Country Solo

During my flight training one required element is a long distance cross country.  I learned a lot from this flight.  As I edit the video I cringe at how I handled landing in KBJI.  There were two King Air planes flying ILS pattern work.  I was very concerned about these faster planes over taking me in the pattern.  I announced I was a student pilot and left the pattern to allow the other planes access.  They announced they would be out of my way so I turned in for a long final approach.  In hindsight I realize by doing so I monopolized the pattern for a much longer amount of time than necessary.  I should have just joined the pattern and and got on the ground and out of their way.  Learning is what this is all about though right?  I know I won’t be making the same mistake in the future.  I hope you enjoy the video.  I cut over 4 hours of flight time down to less than 15 min.  I tired to have each leg last about 5 min.  Comments are welcome.  Go easy on me. 🙂
