This is me flying again (notice my tight, nervous grip?). It just so happened that we had gusty conditions when I started flying. The sudden drops and turns weren't my fault, honest! Amos taught me a couple simple flying basics like how to use the rudder (foot pedals) in conjunction with ailerons (yoke) to make smooth turns. I also learned that every time you turn, the plane tends to lose altitude, so you've gotta pull up to counteract that.
