Working towards obtaining my private pilot license.
This is my third flight training lesson (1.4 Hobbs Hour today, 3.4 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 lesson involved:
