Cessna 120 Taxi + Takeoff
« on: March 05, 2017, 09:00:09 PM »
A little while ago, I took this flight with my dads friend in his Cessna 120. I thought you guys may want to see it.



We took off from lake hood and went out to the Goose Bay area, but the wind coming over the trees there threw the plane around a lot, so we went out and did some air work. It was later in the day and had just snowed, so there was a lot of flat-light, making it hard to judge height on landing. The touchdown was a little surprising since I still thought we were a couple of feet above the ground, but it turned out just fine. One thing I noticed on this flight is that I definitely have better directional control on the ground and the plane feels a lot less out-of-control. Too bad FSX doesn't really simulate tail-wheel ground handling.

There is a 185 with its loud IO-520 in the background taking off from the lake, which is why the 120 sounds so loud.

Thanks everyone. Jsapair, I can solo in 3 years and get my licence in 5 years at 18. Right now, were just flying around for run, and we haven't really started anything. It always scares my mom when I tell her that :D
