IMC Rating - Lesson 12 ILS Southend Runwy 24

Yesterday (Sunday Feb 16, 2014) I was back at Southend for some ILS approaches. The weather was really nice with lovely clear blue skies. I'm pleased to say I did three approaches to Runway 24 and they all went well. Well enough that my instructor Pete was pleased with the affair anyway. The wind was again kind with only 10 degrees of drift coming in on final approach so all the numbers made sense. 

Next week the agenda will be a test profile. A kind of lesson which is a recap on some of the earlier work. This should be interesting because although my recent work on the PA28 has gone well its been limited to pretty much tracking. The earlier handling stuff (limited panel, general IMC and recovery from unusual attitude etc) was all done in a different type of aircraft... a C172!
