Orientation Training #7

Posted 02-24-2009 at 11:13 AM by ted_wears_a_hat (The Trials & Tribulations of a Learner)

Practising turns specifically in last nights Phoenix session. I have noticed I am more comfortable turning right to left than left to right but I am getting there. Maintaining altitude is something else I really need to work on.

Crash Fix

Posted 02-22-2009 at 05:41 PM by ted_wears_a_hat (The Trials & Tribulations of a Learner)

So last weekend I had a little unscheduled meeting with terra firma (flight #135) and I have finally got round to fixing the B400 back up.
