On the agreed date we met at the airport.  They together rented the plane and I registered as the pilot.  It was a really good day, nice and clear.  However two things happened on that flight which made me so grateful that the training had been so stringent.  We were having a scenic flight over the Dandenong Ranges when I noticed that we were losing altitude.  However, I had the whole plane configured to climb.  Ensuring there was enough air below me, I persevered and eventually gained the saver altitude.

The second incident was more unpleasant, but was also overcome.
