It's good to be home...

After a few weeks overseas on holiday, it is really nice to be back home and able to relax for a few days before heading back to work.

Yesterday I got a dual flight in the club's Cessna 172 - a bit of a refresher having not flown much recently, and a bit of fun. If the weather is good, I'll get a solo flight in on Saturday.

A couple of very different aircraft seen today are a Cirrus Design SR22, ZK-WIJ and an RNZAF operated Bell UH-1H Iroquois, NZ3805. These choppers will become an increasing rarity over the next year or so as they are replaced by the NATO Helicopter Industries NH90.
