Take it to the Bridge!

01/12/2016 – I’d been to the Humber Bridge before, more than once, but this was the first time I’d been up there solo. It gives me practice in getting clearance from Doncaster but apart from that it’s a very straightforward flight.

And so it proved. I flew up there, I flew back. It was pretty sunny coming back and of course the sun was in my eyes but not a particularly challenging flight. Of course any time you spend solo while training is amazing anyway, wherever you get to! And the Humber Bridge still impresses me despite the hundreds of times I’ve driven over it.

My lesson on the 21st December was cancelled. However that wasn’t to be my last opportunity to fly this year. I’ll tell you about my final flight of 2016 in the next episode.

If you want to know more, the podcast, as always, contains an expanded version of the above.
