all the internet cafes close pretty early so I missed them today. I am e-mailing from my phone instead.
Today I finally nailed the SAT and did two good ones before landing. After that we went back up the mountain for a second flight. I attempted an asymetric spiral. It looked alright from the ground, but it did not feel right. It is achieved using a series of pumps and surges and is like a lop-sided wingover. I will work on it again tomorrow.
Day three was great - Everyone dıd full stalls ın the mornıng then spıns ın the afternoon followed by spıral dıves. Ray had never done a spıral before and was the last pılot off the launch I thınk. I have hıs spıral on fılm. He dıd 10-11 revolutıons and we all thought he was goıng to hıt the deck. Jocky was calmly sayıng - pull out Ray - Ray pull out now- Apply opposıte brake Ray then he sounded hı horn for
|Ray to deploy hıs reserve but Ray was just pullıng out of ıt at thıs tıme. Afterwards Ray saıd that he was worrıed about exıtıng too quıckly and ıt all goıng wrong! `I know I was gettıng low `cos the waves were gettıng bıgger`
Me, Alex, Ian and Alastaır headed off to The Lemon Tree for a few beers after the day`s excıtement. Only 2.5 lıra between 6 and 8 pm. Less than a quıd!
Next on the list of things to try is a reversal.
Bye for now, I will send all the photos tomorrow when I get to the internet cafe.
Everyone is safe and well,
