I will be at the field this coming Wednesday for anyone who needs/wants flight instruction or help trimming a new/repaired or difficult airplane.

The time is earlier because the sun sets earlier.

This service is available no matter the weather forecast.  If it rains, bring a boat.  :D

Nice evening. Little wind.   About the first day without a howling gale. 13 cars in the parking lot, 4 students. 4 guests plus two kids.

Training flights with Jan (3), William (1), Mike V. (1), Marvin (1)

Neat trick.  Oscar took Mark Satin up on Oscar's new Habu.  Mark had the buddy box.  The plane has auto-land.  The flight went really well.  Hats off to Oscar for the teaching spirit.

Photos:
37- Kenny guides his airplanes by facial expressions.
38- Peter appreciated the photo without the "turn a little left, plane a little higher, bigger smile instructions, etc."
41- William prepping his Mini-Apprentice.
42- KC after his flight.
43- Mike assembling his plane.
44- Kenny and one of his two leaf blowers.
46- Oscar introducing a new religion.
48- Oscar coaching Mark through the flight...with Oscar's airplane.

Great to see everyone out on a bit of a dreary evening.
Cure for a dreary evening? Fly! ;D

I didn't purchase the auto landing module. It's really not necessary.  This is all done by the pilots.  Yes, the plane design and the AS3X does have a major factor in the successful flight.
