The first flight lesson for a student pilot is one of the most exciting and scariest times of a life. You can imagine when doing flight lessons, that it’s kinda nerve-wracking. Everything is new with the airplane, things are kinda different, and it’s just a whole new world. That can be intimidating. While it’s like drinking from the firehose, the first flight lesson for a student pilot is still a really neat experience. Sienna seems to be having a great time doing it.
Join us on Sienna’s first flight lesson. She’s a student pilot working on her private pilot flight training here at Angle of Attack. She recently got the bug, when she did a Discovery Flight. Now she wants to be a pilot.
So here in this video we are, we are in the Cessna 172 that our flight school has, and we’re happy to be flying. We’ll be trying to do a lesson a week, which is pretty decent. We walk through taxiing, normal takeoff, learning trim, turning errors, slow flight and of course landing.
For those wondering, Annalynn (famous for her solo video on our channel) is a commercial pilot, and working on her CFI! So she’s observing from the back.
