Cardiff through the occluded front!

After cancelling my weekend trip to Cardiff the week before due to Severe Thunderstorms, we get to fly a quick day trip for lunch. Due to a weak occluded front, we have some challenges navigating some convective weather, landing with an ILS approach.

Oversight & YouTube –

I hope the route I am taking is going to make me a better pilot and to share with you all the new skills that I hope to learn. Whilst this will be a long road to having the Instrument Rating; I hope I can provide you with an oversight of my progression and as I develop my skillset and airmanship in exclusive videos on my YouTube channel. 

I hope to share with you guys in a unique editorial style with me breaking down thoroughly and honestly everything that went wrong from pre-flight, to landing to debrief, what I have learned from it and what steps I am putting in place to make me a safer pilot in the future.   I’ll be using the reference material above along with Standards Document 01 (A) to assist in my endeavors.
