PulsR flies to the Tocumwal breakfast…

 At Tocumwal, each first Sunday of the month the Aero Club,  has a breakfast. The Club members do a great job cooking breakfast. So YFT makes a point of flying over the YTOC for the breakfast almost every month. Today was no exception. Pilots arrived at 0730 hours at Hangar 19 for the flight to Tocumwal.  Anne thought she would be very clever, using a winter neck warmer under her helmet as well as around her neck to beat the expected cold. This, together with her usual skull cap totally prevented her from hearing anything more than a muffled radio communication under her helmet. Peter was impressed with the outcome…a nice quiet trip from the back seat. But Anne had learnt her lesson, and this technique was altered on the flight home! Aircraft ready, and off we went, …three Trikes and one Chipmunk. The air was crisp and the flight was great. The Canola was flowering and almost all the paddocks to the horizon, were yellow or green, a veritable patchwork quilt (and Anne would know!). There was a bit of smog around this morning and visiblity wasn’t the best, although we could still see over 25nm. With no wind on the ground we all decided to make a straight-in approach on runway 27. One after the other we landed and taxied to the terminal building and parked the aircraft. Day light saving had started at 2am this morning, and we did notice that some pilots forgot to change their clocks. Ha Ha… we got the best parking areas and a nice hot coffee on arrival. Chatting with some of the pilots who are not regularly at Yarrawonga is always good fun. After a delicious breakfast, when everyone started to fly back to “the rest of their day”, we also returned to our home aerodrome. Climbing out, the thermals were starting up, but this was no problem for the PulsR. We just climbed above them, and flew back to Yarrawonga in smooth air! Another great flying adventure with friends…. Thanks everyone.
