As I prepare for my first solo, I flew once in November (blue) and once so far in December (red). We are solely doing touch-and-go’s so far to practice flying in the traffic pattern as well as landing + ATC. I was surprised when I measured the length of a single loop around the pattern. It came up to around 7 s.m.. In total, the blue path is around 125 s.m. which is a crazy distance given that we are basically going around in huge circles!
