Wellington to Paraparaumu return today :-)

Finally! I got to go flying again!

The weather has been less than ideal over the past few weeks and today started much nicer. After arriving at the Club around midday, plans were made for a quick flight to Paraparaumu [NZPP] in the Club's Cessna 172, ZK-FLT, to drop off the CFI who would bring another aircraft back.

As it turns out, four of us went up to NZPP, two hopped out and two of us flew back in the C172. The weather was not great [no surprise there!] with a period of moderate rain cutting down the visibility for a few minutes and a lumpy final approach into Wellington. Still, an enjoyable flight!

The two pictures are of the newly painted Piper PA28-181, ZK-TDJ. The first picture is the shiny new paint job, the second is an older photo of the previous paint job for comparison. Click on the images for more detail.
