Night Flying

Summoned by the lure of a calm atmosphere and good weather, the IFR Pilot and MS decided to work out the kinks on the autopilots while flying a couple of ILS's at KCAK. After which, they headed back for night quals at The Home Base.

That is all.

Spring Abounds

MS and the IFR Pilot are in Tallahassee for about 18 hours. Weather was crummy leaving the Home Base, had to stay VFR below the scud for about 30 minutes. Then, we climbed above it, and just south of the mountains, it was CAVU.

MS spotted a lovely dam in the mountains:

Here we are landing at KAHN, Athens, Georgia:

There, we saw a lovely Avanti on the tarmac, just waiting for us to fly it. Alas, we didn't get a chance to do so. Perhaps someday?

They had an AWESOME objet d'art hanging from the room of the FBO at Athens. Witnesseth:

Finally, at TLH, we were joined by some Jet-A burners from the Navy:

What A Difference A Few Days Makes

Today's TAF tells a much different story from the fog seen earlier this week:

KCLE 021551Z 20009KT 10SM FEW120 BKN250 26/07 A3002 RMK AO2 SLP160 T02610072

Unfortunately, after spending the last 1.5 days on the couch, doing battle with some sort of flu-like bug, the IFR Pilot is strapped into the left seat in his office, pushing around papers.

The good news: MS and the IFR Pilot are off on a journey to Florida next Friday. Good times abound for the approximately-36-hour trip we're planning.
