More low flying comp practice... constant radius eggs :-) are still going well!

Another day, more weather better than forecast :-) Like yesterday I took the Club's Cessna 172 up for a run through of the low flying manoeuvres for Flying NZ nationals. This time I had Amy and Ben along for the ride and so made sure that I was well above 500' AGL all the time.

It mostly went well. My left turns are quite good, although my right turns need a little more work. In particular my right-hand constant radius turns come our closer to "egg" shaped than round :-(, so a lot more work to do there.

One big plus from the flight was that Ben was videoing the various turns and stuff which will be useful. I'm not going to bore you with all of it, so here's the first two minutes from takeoff. Enjoy!
