My first attempt was almost an entry into a spin - DON'T TOUCH THE AILERONS!!! Solid - got it, don't touch the ailerons - which actually causes a view of nothing but ground. Like you're falling out of the sky.
Subsequent attempts were much more successful - something I don't want to practice but need to.
Can't wait til my next lesson. Had a different CFI this time as well (Mike) - its good to switch it up.
