Sunday May 14, 2012 - A Trip Down To Goodwood

Sunday was a great opportunity to get out and do some flying again. With some cracking weather my friend and I went down to Goodwood in his Robin.

Leaving Headcorn we headed down to Hailsham and turned West. From here we flew at 3,000ft over Shoreham and over to Goodwood. It was a busy day as it was the first weekend of good weather for quite some time.
We joined Runway 24 crosswind and followed another Robin around the circuit for a nice smooth landing. A cup of tea and a chat later we then returned via the exact route. It was super to be up in the air again and it was my first time in the Robin. I liked the Robin especially what seemed like an elevated view from the seat (compared to the Cessna 152) and the visibility above through the glass canopy. Something not available in a high wing Cessna.

While it has been frustrating waiting for my QXC trips out like this remind me how fantastic it is to fly.
