23 January 2016 - IMC Refresher Training at Southend Flying Club

Back to Southend (EGMC) for some IMC refresher training. Did some general handling, recovery from unusual attitudes, timed turns, compass turns, limited panel work and a procedural ILS approach on R23. Pete my instructor was happy with the detail.

It's been nearly two years since flying a PA28 and I was a little disoriented  at first with the cockpit layout. G-BOTF if a lovely plane though and flies beautifully. A mark one model, circa 1972 I believe, which makes it about 150HP. I understand its getting a makeover this year as well. Couldn't quite hear ATC at some points hence now slightly worried the headset gremlin has returned! Can't wait to return for some more refresher training.

It's so great to be back at Southend Flying Club!
