Welcome to HWO! All Skyhawks are White?
C172 — N66213 — North Perry Hollywood, FL > (practice area) — T/O, Basics, Gusty Wind practice, Landing — 1hrs
This next 3 months is kind of aviation bootcamp for me; A long extended vacation where I stay in a hotel, work in the off hours, but devote the bulk of my time to both ground school and flight training till you drop. (Tough life, I know...) So here I am: a new flight school, new planes, and new instructors, new winds and plenty of blank pages in my logbook.
And off and away we go, head west and left at the trailer park and up to the practice area for a good 1hr of orientation and maneuvers. Of course we gotta announce ourselves to other trainers coming and going, right? "North Perry Practice Area: We're a WHITE Skyhawk northbound at 2,500ft crossing the trailer park, heading into the practice area."
We get a call back; "North Perry Practice Area: WE'RE (also) a WHITE Skyhawk northbound at 2,500ft just east of the trailer park, heading up to the practice area."
We get another call back; "North Perry Practice Area: WE'RE (also) a WHITE Skyhawk southbound at 2,500ft just north of the trailer park, heading down from the practice area."
The instructor and I had a good laugh; A valuable lesson that many planes are WHITE, so we need to mention the combo color such as White and Blue, etc. in the call.
