Just had my first flying lesson today.
Went out in a Cessna 138 (I think that's what it was).
Enjoyed every minute of it and will go again.
Took off in a westerly direction from Weston Airport near Dublin and climbed to 1500 ft. When the instructor tuned into the local tower I could not get over the amount of air traffic that was about (I think there was a lot of changes to flight plans due to bad weather at about 6000ft- for those that dont know, Weston is near DUB and would be near a lot of approach routes).
The best of all was that I flew directly across my own house about 40 miles away from the airport. Fantastic.
Anyway, I was just looking for some info/opinions.
I am thinking of doing further lessons and taking it more seriously. What would be my best approach (sorry for the pun!!) to understanding more about flying. Would I be better of doing research/reading first and if so, what would you recommend?
Does anybody have any tips on what I should learn first?
Any answers will be greatly appreciated
