Today's flight lesson was circuit training which is a total exercise from take-off to landing. There are a lot of procedures I have to do in a short time; taking off from the runway, climbing, left turn at 500 feet, continuing climbing until 1,000 feet, slowing down to 65 KTS, maintaining the altitude, pre-landing check, tower call, left turn and starting to descend, one more left turn for the approach, touch and go, and climbing again. It is a good exercise because it contains all the normal procedures. I repeated it five or six times, and succeeded in landing only once. A Medium cross wind prevented me from a successful approach yesterday, but I have to overcome any kind of obstacles, because just one mistake means a crash!
