I will be there and fly in from somewhere, depending on where I am

I need to withdraw from this event, just remembered I have my GAF training at the same time as this event. I’m very sorry and hope to attend the next one!

En route to YSSY currently from NZWN

Yikes Josh - I feel for those passengers! Might need to make a quick stop at A&E for them after that haha! Link for his landing is below:
Josh’s “Landing”

Here’s some other snaps I got!


Wow! Was it windy or something, I’ve only ever seen Josh butter the the bread not mash the potatoes 🤣. I don’t mind though, I think he has seen my bad landings before

No offence @Josh 😅


Wind was 310@20G30kts so was pretty breezy - made the bread a little harder to butter!

You really had to record it didn’t you

Crosswinds were going from 30-50 knots in a matter of seconds it was really hard to control

It was looking good until my wheels touched the ground. Then I knew I was stuffed immediately after lol


I noticed that on my final I could not keep my airspeed landed safely but the wind was gusting every 2 seconds at one stage it was crazy then slowed just 10ft off the ground then back up again
