Now I could go alone. My first assignment was to do circuits and bumps, all alone. As there was only one daily flight into the airport, it was not likely that I would encounter a commercial aircraft, so I was at ease and thrilled to be out there alone, albeit only at the airstrip. One of the things that it is important to deal with when practicing manoeuvres, is boredom. If you get bored then you stop paying attention and become a dander to yourself and those around you. I set myself goals to keep my attention on the job.
