Well guys,

My long wait and many miles traveled to find flight instructors finally paid off, I took my Legal Eagle around the patch tonight.
My plan was to take off and climb to about 1500ft and remain there for abot 15 minutes. Unfortunately this did not work out as my temp problem resurfaced as I climbed through 100ft forcing me to return to the field.

Given the fact that this was my first flight and it was very brief I think I did quite well. I advanced the throttle to max and left the runway at about 30mph. After I climbed through 100ft I looked scaned my panel and discovered my cht was 4 hundred and climbing! I made a poorly coordinated left 180 at about 300ft to begin my downwind leg, I proceeded north to what felt about the right spot reduced power and made I much nicer decending 180 to the left to put me on final. After clearing the trees at the north end of the field I cut the power and setteled in for a somewhat bouncy landing. I taxied back shaking my head at the cht gauge and smiling at how well the plane performed.

I will be out at the field again tomorrow looking into a different cht probe location and making another flight or 2 if I like my temp results.

Happy flying
Chris

3 things that dont matter altitude above you runway behind you and the gas back at the hanger

takeoff is optional landing is mandatory

Fly only in the middle of the air, the edges are identified by buildings trees and houses, and it is much more difficult to fly there.

It is better to be on the ground wishing you were flying then flying and wishing you were on the ground!
