Nighty Nighty


Finally I have managed to block a couple of days off to go to Naples Air Centre tomorrow to start my night rating, the first few hours will be Friday night then the final few including the cross country on Saturday night. The only potential spanner in the works is a little thing called Hurricane Alex which is whipping up a storm in the gulf of Mexico and could put the mockers on the plan.
I have also booked up to do my practical radio telephony exam aswell on England when I am over there for my holidays as there's not too many options for me to do it here in the US.
I am hoping to get a few hours in whilst I am in the UK for my holidays with the idea of taking my dad for a flight around the south-west and maybe a spot of lunch in north Cornwall Perranporth, (see the enclosed picture) which has an awesome cliff top airport.
I will report in if I manage to get up and dodge the windy bits of Hurricane Alex and finally get my Night rating.
