Maiden Flight Podcast

After a few years of conversations on social media, I finally met Mark from the Maiden Flight Podcast. Enjoyed aviation hangar flying at Weston Airport. Great guy with a true passion for aviation.

I'm hoping 2015 is a great aviation year for both of us.

Finally I Flew!!!

For the first time in 5 months I actually got airborne!!

I have missed flying, but to be honest, its been hard settling back into life in Ireland and I probably wasn't in the right mindset to get back up in the air. Too many distractions away from aviation.

Cold Crisp Morning at EIWT

Charlie Fox Yankee
Ended up flying 1.0 hours with my old CFI. We didn't get very far before finding ourselves on top of a large bank of low cloud that stretched for an eternity. 

Ended up back in the pattern for 5 touch and goes and a full stop. Very happy with my approaches and landings especially after such a long break.

I can't wait to get airborne again in a few weeks. Have some great adventures planned. I hope to fly Charlie Fox Papa next. Those who follow me, know what type of aircraft that is!!

Ran into a couple of Cessna Caravan's on the ramp from South Africa. They are visiting Ireland supporting geological surveys. By the sounds of it, they get to fly around Ireland at 500-800agl all day long. All that wasted space in the aircraft. Maybe they will take me along for a ride!
