A sunset flight on the beach - NZNR

A few days ago, I decided I didn’t want to go for a walk on the beach, I wanted to go for a flight on the beach. So I went up with the XCub to Napier (NZNR), and flew up the coast and back.

This flight was done on the expert server at around 5 pm local time. It was a nice brisk flight of 25 minutes length. Flown VFR, no flight plan.


About to start the engine- waiting on the ramp.

Just after takeoff.

Flying north along the coast.

Back south down the beach

Climbing back up to altitude - to fly back to Napier

A parallel approach at Napier with another Cub!

Touchdown! Getting good at these XCub landings…

People seem to be enjoying my posts so I’m going to keep at it. I’ve been quite a bit more active on IFC lately and I’m happy to see it being well received.

Thanks everyone!

Nice photos! Those are great! That landing looks pretty good.


Awesome photos! I love the third one. Looking forward to more!
