How often do you have something go wrong?

Hi all
Just wondering -
How frequently do you encounter problems or glitches in your flying?
I'm not talking about accidents or incidents, but just anything going wrong.

In my 33 hours of student flying I've had two flap failures (in flight), a radio failure (before takeoff), a vacuum failure (before takeoff), a door come open (in flight), and water in the fuel (the first fuel sample was one-third full of water). That's like a 15% occurrence rate which strikes me as surprisingly high. Just wondering if this is typical. It is certainly good training..

I wouldn't say it's typical Baddles. Maybe the maintenance system in use need some modification.
