Date Wed 6th Mar 2019
Notes First flight in SN. Type converted by Dave Dennison. Lots of lift about, aiming for 3000 tow but lift was awesome so off at 2500.
First thermal to 4500, second to 5500 and third to 6200 in first 30 min. Headed to start of Cambridge hills, then to Matamata town, Waharoa to north of the field and back several times. Had to force the aircraft down at the end of the flight, good hanger landing.
Epic flight.
