20 seconds from bust

I think I suffered from pilot complacency when taking a short flight from Redhill to North Weald.

Instrument training

I have to revalidate my restricted instrument rating every 25 months with a flight test. As I approached the deadline for my test, I took a flight with an instructor to brush up on some rusty skills.

Flying from the UK to the Netherlands

Watch as I encounter Poor visibility on a crossing of the English Channel, a wake turbulence warning near Amsterdam, and parachutists on landing.
