Another great day at YFT. Tocumwal Aero Club was have there breakfast, so we were in for the flight for that. At 0730 we took to the sky and tracked for YTOC. Tony used the opertunity to get in a Navigation flight. Breakfast was brilent as usual. Thanks everyone at Tocumwal for that. The flight over was great and so was the flight back. Thanks to all the pilot’s and crew for making it a great day.
Lot’s of training today and over the airwaves we hear the broadcast from Stuart flying inbound from Shepparton airport to have a coffee. Stuart stayed for a couple of hours before heading back to Shepparton. We might see Stuart at the Breakfast at Tocmuwal tomorrow.
Student Tony has been flying circuits and he is finding out how unreliable his aircraft is now that his training is progressing. He never knows when he might have an engine failure. CFI’s are very nasty. Tony is doing really well and he will be flying to Tocumwal tomorrow.
