I took a Cessna 172 from Sywell to Old Buckenham recently - first visit there. A really nice airfield, despite me being caught out by the narrow runway on the first approach, then being caught out by the C172's ability to float like a balloon and the sloping runway on the second approach...!

Sadly I forgot to turn the camera on for the return leg.

Definitely an airfield worth visiting, although due to a delayed departure the cafe had shut by the time I got there.

Hope you enjoy

I've had my licence for over 5 years, but recently I decided to actually fly into the airfield where I caught the bug - Andrewsfield in Essex - some 15 years ago.

From Sywell, the easiest route is direct through Stansted's CTR, so I thought i'd give this a go! Essex radar were very helpful and managed to slot me in crossing the landing threshold just behind a Ryanair. No such luck on the return flight, 20mins after the initial request and 10mins orbiting outside airspace and I had to call it quits and take my planned diversion route.

A very pleasant airfield to visit, with a great restaurant. I'd thoroughly recommend a visit before it gets turned into houses!

Below are a couple of videos of my outbound and return flights between Sywell and Andrewsfield, with the GPS trace of each flight overlaid from Skydemon.

A recent 'Mountain flying' experience around the Scottish Highlands, through Loch Ness and the Cairngorms. Flown 'under instruction' from Highland Aviation at Inverness Airport.

The video just doesn't do the scenery justice!

I wonder how many of your favourites are on the list...

Try these two for size.

Firstly, What would you do if ATC asked you to do this...


Secondly, how good is your aviation French? Put yours to this test with this tricky example...

How's that landing ?

I just managed to mount a camera for fun and for self-diagnosis! No fancy editing or music, just me doing a runway inspection and then landing on a rough, narrow airstrip on a hot hazy day.



Whadya reckon?

Today, I had one of the most interesting flights in my flying career. I was flying out of Black Diamond/Cu Nim (CEH2) in Alberta.

I took up the father of two of our youngest students for his first glider flight. It wasn't planned and the conditions didn't look promising, but our high-performance two-seater, the DG1000S, was available so we launched.

We released at 2000' above ground and flew around for a while and were at 1000', preparing to enter the circuit, when we entered a strong thermal which allowed us to gain 3000'. This height (7700' ASL) allowed me to demonstrate the high-speed performance of the DG1000S and before descending, we moved upwind to get away from a rain shower that was passing over the field. At was at this point, we saw the most remarkable double-rainbow, below us!

Rainbow picture and video by Bart, my passenger.
