THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU

ZS-DXIFriday I got back into the air again after a 2 year 'drought'. Thanks again to all those involved with the hand controls. I can't say thank you enough.

It was both exciting and a little nervous at the same time. Thanks to Derek Pratt from Lanseria Flight Center for getting me back into the air. It was just out to the GF with a few stalls and a couple of medium/steep turns.

I had forgotten how much energy it took to get in and out. Back to the gym for me.

It was amazing and very enjoyable but tiring. I slept like a baby on Friday night.
