Currently working toward my PPL out of KLVK (Livermore Municipal) in Livermore, CA
with professional ambitions.
Last flight was night VFR pattern work w/a minor emergency when neither my instructor or myself noticed that the flaps were stuck at 30 degrees on touch and go (the handle was broken, we thought they had retracted). Knew something was amiss when we rotated at 48 knots with no back pressure on my part and I immediately had to correct with strong forward pressure on the yoke to keep the nose from ballooning to a dangerous attitude (I had retrimmed for takeoff on the landing roll). Flew a tight pattern at 60 knots and negligible climb rate to get back to the field. Builds character eh
I fly a '79 C172N, '82 C172P and '97 C172R at my school.

If you need someone to blame / throw a rock in the air / you'll hit someone guilty
