My instructor and I flew to Waukesha this evening for an instrument cross-country lesson. I chose Waukesha so I could visit my friend again and because I just like the airport. We flew under an IFR flight plan. This meant I had to communicate with air traffic control during the entire flight, basically from startup to shutdown. I logged 3.1 hours which includes 1.4 night flight and 2.9 simulated instrument flight.
