It will be interesting to see if we’re cleared for takeoff…

02 Apr

The winds are outrageous today here in Palm Beach County.

The plane I am taking up tomorrow is a very lightweight plane. It’s a Diamond – they are used as military trainers. This kind of wind would bounce that plane all over the place. It’s only a 2 seater. It’s the kind of plane that you have to climb up into. It has a canopy like a jet on it. On this model, the entire canopy is glass.

I’ll just have to wait and see what conditions are like at 11 a.m.

I like to fly low and with this kind of wind they might not allow it. For me, it’s not as much fun to fly high. It was kind of an overcast day so I am not expecting sunny skies. That does make the flight comfortable because small planes don’t have air conditioning most of the time. The video will not be as picturesque because of the sky color. It will also affect the reflection of the water color. However, I still want to go.
