Oxford NDB Unserviceable

I take a fellow airman flying in a fixed-wing aircraft, and whilst it was hoped to fly an NDB approach for a change, unfortunately, on this day it was unserviceable. Absolute sod’s law.

We finish the flight off with an exciting crosswind, resulting in a bounce; mostly due to opting for a bit more airspeed than usual. Being somewhat used to the DA40’s huge wing, I controlled the bounce well before conducting a normal landing. After a chat over a long-lunch, we fly back to Stapleford.

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.
