CHIEF'S CORNER
Did I mention that I will be alone during all
of this? I can't even share the joy with a lucky,
happens to be living with me, we've flown
together person! Yeah, solo for right now, but I'll
take it.
The flight is planned to be a nice mix of
maneuvers, cross country procedures, and
landings at a couple of airports I've not been to
in a while. I'm confident that I am prepared for
the actual flying part of this flight. I've looked
at the charts, navigation and performance, I
know what my numbers are supposed to be in
a no-wind condition at the planned weight of
the airplane. I have run through the maneuvers
while sitting in my armchair, moving my hands
to the location I expect to find the specific knobs
and switches to be. I have reviewed the ACS
standards to ensure that the maneuvers I am
planning to fly will be within those tolerances
and not one shred more. I've chair-flown
those too, talking myself into and out of them,
reminding myself of what to look for-what I

should be seeing here, and here, and now here.
I haven't plugged in a flight sim program to test
myself, not yet.
But I feel that I am prepared for this flight. I
am ready for it; I have mapped it out, plotted,
planned, run it over in my head a dozen times,
verbalized it in my armchair, closed my eyes,
and run my flows. I even have my personal
minimums reviewed and ready to compare
against the actual and forecast conditions.
My letter authorizing me to travel and to be
in the hangar is ready to go with me in case I
need to prove I am supposed to be doing what
I am doing in compliance with the governor's
order-"maintain essential corporate property
and prevent loss of and damage to corporate
property." I am ready to commit aviation, safely,
with regard for others, some of whom I don't
even know. It's a good feeling. I can't wait for
Friday, fly-day, finally!!! And when it's over, I'll
review what I did-right, wrong, indifferent-
and make changes to improve for the next time,
which is hopefully a lot less than 67 days away!

I HAVE RUN THROUGH THE MANEUVERS WHILE SITTING IN MY ARMCHAIR,
MOVING MY HANDS TO THE LOCATION I EXPECT TO FIND THE SPECIFIC
KNOBS AND SWITCHES TO BE.
