Flying and passengering

Last Sunday afternoon was a day for being a pilot and for being a passenger. Both were fun flights.

First up was a flight in Piper PA28-161, ZK-KAT. This was a solo flight where I went up and did a couple of turns, stalls and a simulated FLWOP.

I don't have photos from that trip, but I hope to have a small video up in the next week or so. I also had a play with some different power settings to see the effect on fuel consumption [having a fuel flow meter is awesome] and checked out the heading hold on the autopilot.

Next up was a trip to Omaka as a passenger. A couple of people were going to pick up another aircraft and I was able to go for the ride.

The aircraft was a Piper PA28-181, ZK-FHQ. Many years ago, this aircraft was online with the club. It has had a major refurb since then!

Here are a few pictures from the trip.
