To make a long story short I bought my 601XLB to take lessons for my sport pilot license. I got that the beginning of last December. My instructor and I didn't do the airspace training or any flight following to avoid me getting tested on it. We had previously done the class B,C and D training and this trip was just to get me use to flight following and to see if we could get through the JFK class B. We flew from HWV on Long Island to 39N in NJ. On the way back my instructor asked if I wanted to fly up the Hudson. He explained the rules to me, what frequency to use and off we went Northbound on the East side. We turned around at the GWB and flew back South along the West side. Maybe my mom will want a tour.
