A flight around Whanganui

So far, I have only had one flight over the Christmas period, where I got to take an aunt and uncle up for a flight around Whanganui, in Wanganui Aero Club's Cessna 172S, ZK-JIP.

The weather wasn't great, with a few clouds around 1400', but mostly a bit higher than that. There was very little wind though, so no turbulence during the flight. Best of all, everyone enjoyed themselves. We got a good look around Whanganui, across the city, out to Kai Iwi, back across to Aramoho and them rejoined to land.

I wasn't taking any photos, so thank you to the Chief Photographer 😀 sitting in the back seat for most of them.

Thanks also to Wanganui Aero Club for the aircraft. In case you were wondering, ZK-JIP was previously ZK-RQA.
