I went flying this morning. While I was at it, I did a rating for the PA28-161 in ZK-MBG – the newest addition to the Wellington Aero Club’s fleet. Took me 2.8 hrs and was lots of fun – first time ever I experienced and practiced a Max Rate Turn. We also nearly had a bird strike on one of the takeoffs from NZWN at about 400ft altitude.
The photo is a bit cheeky. I forgot to take a photo of the plane myself, but didn’t want to steal someone else’s photo of it and just re-post. So, I took a photo of the photo which is available on the website of the Wellington Aero Club 🙂
