Rear seat

9-5-04 Tehachapi with H. First flight from rear seat - not so bad at all. He flew the takeoff (not so well - got high right away), then gave it to me at about 500 feet. Skylark's 9 dumps you out over a reservior - there are a few seconds where you hope you don't have a rope break! He didn't want to let me land, but I talked him into it. Not quite as smooth as yesterday, largely because of not looking straight ahead at the touchdown. Not bad, but a slight bounce.
