I took the PA28 up for some circuits after dark, to practice my night landings.
After a short flight around Kent, a return to Biggin Hill, and an aborted landing.
I had a thoroughly brilliant flight today around Kent. Routing Biggin Hill to Biggin Hill via Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone, Whitstable, Margate, Dover, Folkestone, Tenterden. There were three of us on board, and we all enjoyed the clear blue skies and smooth air.
I’d been meaning to visit a friend who lives near Bognor Regis for some time, and the journey by car is such a bore, so I decided to fly down, have lunch at Goodwood Aerodrome, and then take him on a tour of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.
I have bitten the bullet, and joined a light aircraft group that will hopefully reduce my day to day flying costs.
I decided to take my niece and my mum for a short flight to Shoreham. Temperatures were in the region of 30 Celsius with clear blue skies.
