Today was my fifth early morning flight knocking the rust off of my instrument skills. And I can feel that the rust is finally flying! Today will be the last for about a week as my CFI has to attend to his "real job" flying jets around the world. So, chair flying is in order to keep on the up and up!
Today we started with the ILS 27 at Hagerstown, did a touch and go, then went on to the VOR runway 9. When we were on upwind getting ready to prep for the VOR an aircraft with the fun call sign of "Hoagie" was departing behind us. We ended up doing another lap around the pattern (tight pattern with slip in to land) to give him room to take off and beat us past the VOR. To finish off the lesson we tracked the FDK VOR back to Frederick.
