June 22/17 – PPG course day 6 am

Pretty good flying this morning. Kevin was hammering flight after flight trying to get his 30. Managed to do eight touch and goes and four full stop landings. We have also practiced big ears emergency descent maneuvers and several forced landings. Well done, he’s got 28 flights now. Konstantin managed three flights he’s taking it […]

June 21/17 – PPG course day 5 pm

Last night was finally one of those late afternoon and evenings that is perfectly suitable for PPG training.

Kevin was anxious to put more flights in his logbook and Konstantin was hoping for his first solo. […]

June 21/17 – PPG course day 5 am

It was an excellent morning today. Nice and cool, grass was little bit dewy but sun burned it off very quickly. When we started to set up we only had 5 km/h wind. Kevin were first to go, he tried few forwards but they didn’t work for him. After those failed attempts I went to […]

June 19/17 – Feedback from Mr. E

I found Mr. Zeman’s website and was very impressed, all relevant information could be found there and always up-to-date. His e-mail communication was […]

Three guys in this course – Mike, Kevin and Konstantin. The weather forecast for Saturday was very good but Sunday forecast was calling for very high winds. Therefore, we have decided to switch the order and go to do kiting at the field on Saturday and do ground school on Sunday. It was very decent […]
