Flight Lesson Cancelled Due to High Gusting Winds…

Although it’s a nice bright sunny day this morning, it is extremely windy. I had my flight lesson with another instructor today whose name is Jeremy and we were going to work on landings and takeoffs. Anway, I checked the Aviation Weather website and found out that the high gusting winds will continue pretty much through out the day. I therefore called my flight school and spoke with Kevin and he agreed that it was going to continue to be very windy; I then told Kevin that I would like to cancel the class. Here are the winds at 5.55 pm Central Time:
