Working towards obtaining my private pilot license.
This is my twenty eighth training lesson flight (2.0 Hobbs Hour Today, 37.9 Total Hours) with 424 Aviation Inc, in Miami, FL.
My certified flight instructor (CFI) is Joe Ferrera. The airplane used was a Cessna 172R, with tail number N994WW, out of Kendall-Tamiami Executive Airport (KTMB).

Today’s flight:

– Nighttime flying
– Cross-country (dual) to Homestead General Aviation (X51)
then on to Boca Raton (KBCT) along the western edge of Miami / Everglades,
and back to Tamiami (KTMB) along the ocean’s shoreline.
