The highlight of the day was when I had just done a Go Around after a bounce. Climbed out, did a call for crosswind, then left downwind runway 18. Then called the base. Hear another call “Arrow XXXX is base runway 18……”. Which is where I was.. Called and asked him to specify his position…Immediately. . “Base,18”. I looked but couldn’t find him, and hadn’t heard any other position calls for him. My instructor heard the same thing and looked and couldn’t find him. Heads on a swivel looking….
Then his instructor came on and called CROSSWIND 18. He’d just departed the runway with a call about a Cessna departing, so I am not sure WTF was going on (Cessna is like an Arrow, right???). He was, however behind me in the pattern.
Kinda skary for me and my instructor there, for a few.
