Trust. That's the lesson for today. It hit me when we were reviewing the VOR approaches to Westminster and Frederick that we did today. I need to trust what I've learned and trust the approach that I have reviewed. The more I second guess the procedures or what I am supposed to do next, the more likely it is that I will actually miss miss what I should be doing at that moment. It was beautiful day, albeit bumpy and windy. But the conditions were perfect for keeping my brain working and the IFR rust falling off. Now back to work with an aviation high and the lingering smell of avgas.
