How behind myself am I with writing this up?
A long way. But mostly because I’ve been flying and flying. So this isn’t a trip report as such but a mega quick round up.
Since posting last I have…
Got bounced all over the Welsh coast on the way to the newly reopened Llanbedr.
Sallied across the Bristol Channel down to Devon where I took my cousin flying and then spent every so long dawdling at Dunkeswell waiting in vain for the wind to drop so I could continue onto Belle Vue. Finally arriving after a conversation which ran roughly, “Well it’s still right across the runway but the whole field’s been mowed so just land anywhere”, which was what I did – arriving diagonally across the field into such a stonking wind on the nose I could have got out and walked faster!
Been too heavy fisted with our fuel bulb and burst the pressure gauge resulting in a dial fuel of fuel and a puddle on the pod floor.
Revalidated my SEP rating, upon which I’m flying the microlight on differences training. It was rather lovely to be back in a Tomahawk and sweetly, easily, gently familiar resulting in some very nice landings if I say so myself. (Thought rather less satisfactory PFLs – and I’d got so good at them in the X’Air!)
Battled my way through the new EASA paperwork which should result in both an EASA license and a NPPL dropping through my door in the not too distant.
So that’s the “update so I don’t feel like I can’t write anything without it being out of date” post done out of the way! 😉
Nothing particularly planned for a few weeks other than bimbling but we’ll see!
