Pre-flighting KH, a beautiful calm dewy autumnal morning.
As a gentle introduction back to hour building I thought I’d take the trusty PA38 Tomahawk ‘KH up for a local area navigation flight from Goodwood to Goodwood via a lap around the Isle of Wight. I planned the route via the following waypoints; Goodwood-Southsea-St.Catherines Point -The Needles -Cowes-Southsea -Goodwood, the route taking around 51 minutes with the forecasted winds.
Overhead my turning point at St Catherine’s Point, turning onto a heading towards the Needles.
