Way back then I stepped into a Cessna 172 as a Civil Air Patrol Cadet. I think I can still sit in the right hand seat and not embarrass myself. Its been a long time, but things taught then have not changed. I think I can run the Turn and Balance indicator fine.
For my friends that take to the sky routinely I offer this little missive.
I would be honored to sit with you on your right hand side. It is also paramount to me to not embarrass you if I do.
