On The Air: August 2014

Many years ago as a newly minted instrument pilot, I was flying an old Cessna 172. When I checked in with approach, after the usual exchange, the controller asked me if this was a training flight.

I was a bit shocked because I figured he saw me all over the sky (I thought I was doing fine) and wondered if I was a student. I answered no.

After a short while I keyed the mic and said, “In reference to your question about the training flight, aren’t they all?”

The controller agreed and all was quiet.
