Mark arrived back from Taupo where he indicated his flight over on Friday was interesting.
Also beats driving 3 1/2 hours each way
Now if you think you are that good ya don't need a check ride think again as Mark went up with Brian before heading to Taupo in SSF just to make sure all was good as wasn't current.
Now if it's good enough for a Cresco driver to do a Check ride (he does more hours in a month than most people do in 5 years) make sure you do one if not current.
Gary & ONE arriving
