It has been a fantastic day in Wellington today... the start of winter has come with light winds and blue skies... combine that with a week off work and it's a great day for a flight.
I took the Nanchang CJ6A for a flight around the southern Wairarapa area - around one hour to see most of the sights... nice.
The engine is still being run in, so I was operating it at slightly higher power settings which increases fuel consumption and a little extra speed - can't wait until we can get it back to normal power settings to operate it most efficiently.
Anyway, a couple of photos - the instrument panel then me squinting into the sun 😃
