May 16/17 – 2 tandems this am

It was very cold and early morning for me – 4:45 am wake up and only 6 C. Ouch.

These 2 tandems were planned for Wednesday night but 2.5 day forecast was showing very high winds. Sot we have switched it to today morning.

Grass was quite wet but we did have tiny breeze from south which helped. The air was extremely smooth. No bump at all during the 2.5 hours it took me to do the 2 flights. Both passengers learned how to steer the aircraft – which is very easy.

I have tried to come close to the ground as I always do in the second part of the flight but it was simply too cold. It felt like descending to a freezer. I shiver just to think about it.
