Called the school for a discovery flight. Stacey was able to schedule me with an instructor in the Liberty XL2 that afternoon.
Went to the airport where I met Andrew.
He gave a thorough briefing on the airplane. Using a large photo of the cockpit as a training aid was particularly effective.
Went to the hangar to preflight the airplane. Preflighting an airplane in a heated hangar on a freezing cold day is the only way to go.
Took a short flight toward the northwest of DWM which included stalls, slow flight, steep turns, power off glide. As a licensed pilot Andrew let me get familiarized with the airplane at my own pace. He was helpful in showing me the unique features of the Liberty XL2.
I will be back soon to fly the Diamond DA40.
