    Skypper flies with Corina in control

    Sunday, June 28th, 2015

    Corina flies the Skypper…

    3792Sunday morning and as discussed over dinner on Saturday night, Corina would take her first flying lesson in the Skypper. Corina arrived with Flight suit on and ready to go. Ian aka Aussie QuikR watched on with anticipation. Corina had her per-flight briefing and climbed into the cockpit of Skypper 32-8512 and prepared to start the engine. As Skypper 8512 came to life Corina took control and gently went through the checks. It was time to taxi to the runway. 3798Without missing a beat Corina edged Skypper 8512 to the holding point just like any other Pilot. After entering a backtracking it was time for the take-off. Corina edged the throttle forward and Skypper 8512 rolled down the runway and into the air. After doing a numbed of turns during Corina’s half hour flight Skypper 8512 approached the circuit and then onto the runway with the lightest of touchdowns. The flight was over. Well done Corina your first flight was over and it went really well.

    Flying South on Sunday

    3815Flying South to Mansfield…

    Yes, it was another great day in paradise… It was decided to fly to Mansfield and then on to Wangaratta, before returning to Yarrawonga. Five aircraft departed YYWG and headed South for Benalla. The sky was ideal and at 2500 feet you could almost see forever. 3825Over flying Benalla aerodrome we could only see one aircraft doing circuits on a runway what was closed according to the NOTAM’s. The air was smooth and we had a 10kt headwind as we past Lake Nillahcootie on our way into Mansfield. Joining down wind for runway 33 we could see Jo, Martin’s wife getting ready to take some photos of the arriving aircraft. After landing Jo and Corina went into town and came back with some really nice Coffee and Hot Chocolate. That went down really well. Thanks Jo.

    3841We then departed Mansfield and climbed to 5500 feet and headed over the hills for Wangaratta. What a great leg of this trip. Passing of YWGT at 5500 feet we then climbed to 6500 feet in the warm air and headed for Yarrawonga. It wasn’t cold until we descended to 3500 feet and that’s where it really started to cool down. Arriving back at YFT it was time for a Coffee and the aircrews had to get ready to head home. Thanks to everyone for a really great weekend at YFT.
