This video demonstrates what it’s like to fly a light aircraft, in this case a Piper PA28, on a gusty, turbulent day. It was sunny and clear, but the weather charts warned of moderate turbulence and a chance of gusts.
After a short flight around Kent, a return to Biggin Hill, and an aborted landing.
I had a thoroughly brilliant flight today around Kent. Routing Biggin Hill to Biggin Hill via Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone, Whitstable, Margate, Dover, Folkestone, Tenterden. There were three of us on board, and we all enjoyed the clear blue skies and smooth air.
I decided to take my niece and my mum for a short flight to Shoreham. Temperatures were in the region of 30 Celsius with clear blue skies.
