Flight to Paraparaumu and back

Today's flight was from Wellington [NZWN] to Paraparaumu [NZPP] and back, with 3 circuits at NZPP. The main reason was to get current in the Piper PA38-112 Tomahawk. It was also an excuse to try out my new GoPro Hero 5 Session camera.

The video isn't great - despite how it looks, the camera was attached firmly [using Blutack no less!] to the dashboard - next time I'll leave the camera's software image stabilisation off.

The weather was a little worse for my return, although perhaps not quite as bad as it looks here...

Great video, thanks Rodney. WX a bit dodgy on your return to WN!

Thanks Andrew. yeah, it was all good until final approach. Would have been safe, but significantly reduced viz in places, had I had to go around. Fun times!

I realize it's normal for you but for some of us the idea of flying in to Wellington seems scary and expensive:(
