Air work

other work today: log booms and tugs
Every now and then, usually when the mountains are clogged with clouds and only the valley is flyable, Bill heads off to do some air exercises.  A private pilot must be able to demonstrate slow flight, steep turns, stalls, spins, and other manoeuvres that passengers would rather not suffer through.  Upchuck time, for me, so Bill has custody of both the camera and the control yoke on these flights! 

Here is a flight school that does an excellent job of describing air exercises, plus other aspects of becoming an airworthy pilot: 

Bill practises over nearby Halfway Creek (where he spotted the log booms), then heads into Revelstoke for fuel.
