C-172 R/G-1000, Cessna Skyhawk ASEL
Bay tour. OAK shoreline transition ------------- My plan was to do a bay tour via the SFO Bayshore transition. I requested a "clockwise bay tour via bayshore transition" to HWD ground. I got provided a squak and OAK tower frequency. After being handed off to OAK, the tower asked me to head north west. I requested to confirm that I was doing a bayshore transition, which the controller confirmed. However did not realize this was the OAK shoreline transition (which I had never done anyways, so this was still a good experience). After being handed off to Norcal approach 120.9, the controller told me to do a right turn to 040 and informed me "you are in a TFR right now". I was quite surprise because the SF Giants TFR was not active for another 2 hours but complied. A minute after, the controller told me that the TFR was indeed not active. I finished my bay tour over San Francisco. The ADS-B was quite helpful calling out all the traffic around. I headed back to KHWD when closer to Berkeley. I got routed to the coliseum at 2500. and landed on 28R.

DA-40-XLS, Diamond Diamond Star ASEL
DA40 checkout. Stalls, slow flight, pattern, emergency practice ---------- I decided to get checked out on the DA40 at California airways. The plane is much more modern than the 172s and more performant. It is also a constant speed propeller. After spending 30mn on the gorund and 30mn on the ramp to get familiar with the plane, we took off from runway 28 and headed towards Tracy. The plane behaved perfectly and was really smooth to handle. After passing over KLVK my instructor had me practice some maneuvers (power on/off stalls, steep turns and emergencies). We got into KTCY for a few touch and goes. There is much less flaring on this airplane than on the 172, it took me a few tries to get to a better shape. After 4 touch and goes, we headed back to KHWD, the sun was coming down and the scenery was great. I got checked out on the plane but will fly another session with my instructor in order to feel more confident with the landings.

C-172 S/G-1000, Cessna Skyhawk SP ASEL
Could not land at HAF. South bay tour. Go around -------------- I had planned on going to KHAF and then go north for a bay tour. The TAF and Metar at the time seemed OK. However, ater passing KSQL I realized that the cloud coverage was too low to land at HAF and I could not go north due to the layer of clouds. I decided to follow the coast south until being around the same latitude as San Jose and cross back over the mountain. I could not get Norcal Approach until I got much closer to the Class C San Jose. I asked for flight following back to KHWD but since I had not planned nor studied the route before end, I decided to go south and underneath Class C. Controller was quite helpful and routed me all the way back in to KHWD. On final at HWD, a flock of bords were on 28R, I had to go around to avoid something bad from happening

DA-40NG, Diamond Diamond Star ASEL
Fjords, Glacier. Bergen flight -------------- During a trip to Bergen in Norway, I contacte a local FBO to do a flight over the area. The club I went to had a Diamond DA40NG available. I met the instructor who is a pilot for Norwegian airline on the Boeing 737 on a late morning. Weather was quite hot already. Since I had never flown the DA40, we spent a few minutes to get introduced to the plane. We took off towards the south and flew over various island. We then headed east and went over the Fjords until we reached a glacier. On the way back we practice some maneuvers. I executed slow flights and stalls, the the instructor demonstrated the power on stall. He seemed quite familiar with the plane and executed the stall with a partial entrance to a spin (and recovered quickly). We flew over downtown Bergen afterwards and did a touch and go and one full stop.

4/7/2019 - N398ES (Logged Time: 2.00)
C-172 R, Cessna Skyhawk ASEL
Fly through Class C SAC. Fly over clouds ---------------- Myself and a friend took of from runway 19L. Weather was scattered over Sacramento area, so I decided to fly above the clouds at 3500 instead of 1500 as originally planned. Auburn airport had 3 traffics when 10 miles out, but by the time I got in the pattern, they had all landed. After a brunch right on the APRON at the "wing Cafe" we went back up and this time cloud coverage over SAC and Travis was overcast at 1500. I decided to climb to 4500 and hope that we would find a hole before getting closer to KCCR (which we did). Landing on 32 R was uneventful.
