I was not planning to go flying today. Yesterday was a family wedding [no, not me!] and I got back to Wellington late this morning.
I went out to the aero club to relax ahead of a big [non aviation] day tomorrow, and to cut a long story short, ended up being asked to fly a Cessna C172L, ZK-DFI from Wellington [NZWN] to Parparaumu [NZPP], then bring back a Piper PA38-112 Tomahawk, ZK-TAW. Ummmm, ok!
No photos, so you'll just have the believe me when I say that it was a fantastic day to go flying... 30km plus visibility, very little wind, and sunshine all over!
Paraparaumu was interesting in that their sealed runway is being re-sealed, and so all operations were limited to grass run 34/ 16 which is only about 537 meters long. Plenty long enough for both aircraft though and, yes, I can remember how to do short field landings and takeoffs!
