Tomek Zielinski homepage / Cessna 206 Training in California
I was planned to fly 6 hours with instructors from Sunrise Aviation (2 hours with one instructor and 4 hours with another instructor). Due to not very good weather I ended up flying 1.3 hours with the first instructor and 2 hours of ground school with the second instructor.
These 1.3 hours was only pattern work. Cessna 206 I was flying has 300HP engine, so it required a lot of right rudder during takeoff. And also due to its higher weight much more power on the approach than I was used to so far, but other than that it did not seem to be much more different to fly than C-172 that I was flying the most recently.
