Video: ILS approach practice Lydd

The flying reporter gets stuck into some proper instrument flying practice on a flight from Biggin Hill to Lydd.  It’s only a short hop, but ends in an ILS (Instrument Landing System) approach.

On 11th January, I took a short IFR flight from Biggin Hill, to keep the skills fresh.  I was in cloud for the majority of the flight and it tested my IMC rating to the max.

This is my first solo IFR flight after obtaining my UK restricted instrument rating.  I was keen to get the rating, so that there were more opportunities for me to fly in the UK, despite it’s pesky, rotten weather.
