Next on was Regan & Shaun in for a flight introduction.
Regan heading out first
In between all this Gary giving RVH a polish and look over Roger S supervising....
Looks pleased with himself
Wayne explaining a bit more of the who what why and when of Aviating
Shaun was next up
I think he got bit by the Aviation Bug....
Yup he's infected
They both tried out a few of the Various Aircraft we have around the place. Here doing the Bantam thing.
Gary M was up next in SSF getting a refresher before heading of to the Pauanui & Whitianga for the respective fly-in's the coming weekend.
Good to report we now have to new members and they have been issued with Log Books. Excellent as we now up to around 15 pilots under training now
Wayne giving SNW a tickle before heading off to the above as well.
Quite amazing these lil Jabiru 80hp motors this one done in excess 500 hours with absolutely no issues runs like a swiss watch. Has been all over the Country over the Southern Alps including Mt Cook (off course Mt Taranaki/Egmont many times) to Stewart Island up north to Kaitaia and all points North South East & West in all conditions on 12 litres an hourish (Bastard) can't get more affordable than that.
Had just changed plugs here and they were perfect good even burn on all Plugs.
Now one has to have a clean bottom when going away just not the done thing to arrive with a grubby Buttox.
About to head off
