Today I added 3.7 hours to the log book which brings the plane up to 600 hours. Today's flight was a lazy sightseeing flight with an average speed of 87 MPH.
I spent a little time seeing how low I could get my fuel burn and maintain altitude. Around 2.8 GPH is as low as I can get it without sliding out of the sky.
When I got home I upload my GPS track like I always do to review my flight. This one looks like I perhaps I had a bit too "much to drink" with all the S-turns. I find that 80 miles per hour is a nice speed for just "fooling around" and having fun. I suspect that more than one person looked up today and said "what the heck is that airplane doing?". If they only know how much fun I was having up there.
I ended the day out over the Pacific Ocean where I caught the sunset then headed back to the airport so I could get onto the ground before my light-sport airplane turned into a pumpkin (which is rumored to occur about 30 minutes after sundown.) I always get a kick out of turning on the massive runway lighting system at my home base, Santa Rosa airport - such "power" in the tip of my finger....
