Graham, can you tell us more about this mid prop flying flea?
Today was another beautiful CAVOK day in Victoria. I decided to take the Eurofox for a flight over Lake Eildon to take in the views. It doesn't get any better than this! (Bonus points for those with a keen eye that can read my rego).
Made the journey from Bundy to Monduran today, just a quick 22nm flight. The Monduran Aero Club hosted a lunch for members & visitors. A good turn out, about 10 visiting aircraft & plenty of locals. Not long after lunch there was a shower of rain come through, nothing like what they need though, the attached pic shows how dry it is around here.
Completed another Circuits Lesson on Friday, this time in 7600. Peter my regular Instructor is a way for a few weeks so also had a new Instructor, Mahl who is looking after me until Pete is back. I have to admit I was a bit nervous as Mahl is the Chief Flying Instructor and Owner and I have not flown with him before, but in no time he had me at ease and the lesson got underway with gusto
My flying can be classed as a little bit clunky, tense, and a little aggressive on the controls sometimes so Mahl set about instructing me with simple changes that would help and benefit me as whole, I have recorded 2 circuits, one with Mahl flying and one of me having a go using the tips he has demonstrated, I now have Cockpit Audio Recording setup on my Garmin VIRB, so this is a warts and all video of my flight, "the good and the bad"
More finessing needed still, which will come with practice, so more circuit work ahead, which I dont mind, the more the merrier, its all about making me a better pilot after all, thanks Mahl, back for some more training this friday with Mahl again, cant wait, "Still walking away with the biggest smile on my dial"
Closing the ice season for 2017.
