Have you ever been to Southern England? Well today we present A day out in London! We start at EGKK (Gatwick), at Sunrise time, then fly over to EGBB for breakfast in Birmingham. After a 5 minute stop and changing the time to noon,we depart again for EGLC for lunch in London, enjoying the beautiful view of the Thames river, and flying the steep approach to City (Tutorials tagged at bottom). As city doesn’t have many spaces if this event has more than 10 people (Check back before the event) you will touch and go and change to sunset and then circle for a few minutes until everyone is ready for the leg down the coast to supper in Southampton (EGHI), passing over the Isle of Wight and the Dorset cliffs. After a lovely day of flying we switch time to night and return back to Gatwick. You can join or leave this event at any point, such as join at EGBB and leave at EGHI, hence the short stop at each for all to join. Please ask for a gate below and comment how much of the route you will do (Just an estimate, it’s fine to do more or less).

Take parking 6 :) look forward to seeing you there

Remember to switch flying times throughout the event!

I did a run though. I don’t have many night landings but I’m used to ILS

Could you screen shot a suggested route? I have planned everything with easy turns.
I’ll suggest my plan later
