Sometimes it is extremely frustrating not having a car. I’m actually okay with traveling for two hours to get to the airport versus the 45 minutes it would take by car. What is frustrating for me is that how the weather looks like it is doing two hours before a lesson can be much different than what it actually does two hours later.
As you can guess, my lesson was cancelled today due to weather. But by 12pm the weather turned out fine. Argh. I’ve thought about borrowing a friend’s car, but I don’t want to abuse that because I will need to do it to get in my night flying and probably for my checkride. Zipcar is too expensive $10.25 per hour. Definitely renting a car would be too expensive and I’m not 25 so even more. So I’m kind of stuck with guessing.
I also got a call from my CFI today and she got a last minute charter flight (which I didn’t know she did part-time charters, therefore she has 3 jobs: charter pilot, CFI, and figure skating instructor) so we could cancel or put me with another instructor. I said I’d go with another instructor if it was looking good tomorrow. At first it was one I didn’t know, and then I see I got an email and changed to one I do know. I’m actually kind of really excited for tomorrow. New perspective and I totally have a soft spot for this guy because he use to work the front desk and when I first started out I talked to him all the time because I was always cancelled due to weather (shocker!) and he also gave me a ride to a far away train station so I could get home earlier. We’ll see how his teaching is!
