When I started learning to fly, I was flying in the two seater tube and cloth plane, On the 25th of February 2012 I was sent into the two seater all metal plane, because in the tube and clothe plane, my arm was short and I couldn't get to the joystick with my right arm and I was unable to reach the instrument panel to turn the key and to switch on the mags, so I was moved into the metal plane and it is now perfect for me with the instruments panel because my right arm could reach the joystick, the throttle and other controls.
I had my lesson in the aircraft by registration Alpha Foxtrot. It was not easy to fly in, the controls were a little bit sensitive for me to handle so I needed to practice more on how to handle that in a much more co-ordinated manner with my arms and feet. I had been able to fly the aircraft in the directions I needed and need to practice straight and level in order to make things easier for me. I sat in the left seat and Jonathan sat in the right seat of the plane, we did some Touch and Gos, I was very happy for the time I was given in AF because I enjoyed flying her.
