The lesson was in two parts, one with my instructor Mike and the other part solo. We covered a practice engine failure and also performed a real go around to avoid wake turbulence (when a helicopter took of while we were half way down finals). The lesson was fairly uneventful really until the last landing when I had difficulty controlling the aircraft on landing, drifted off the main runway into the longer grass. All landings were ok although a bit flat so room for improvement there. I wasn't going fast on landing although the grass was wet, I have a feeling I must have been crabbing slightly when I touched down, possibly also touching one of the brakes too early. This may have caused the aircraft to swing/veer round. I'm not sure so I'll need to read up as to what could have caused this. Everything apart from that was, as I say uneventful.
