The new season should have started well, but it hasn’t. First there’s was the fly out to Texel with Aéro-Sport I was supposed to attend with my family, but due to bad weather, I had to cancel our weekend.
Last weekend, we planned to fly for three days to Koksijde at the Belgian coast and again, it was no weather for VFR pilots. I have been driving by car to the Belgian coast. Pfft
I can only hope that the upcoming fly out in two weeks to the Champagne region I have been setting up will work out better.
Here’s the program- copied from the travelaerosport.blogspot.com blog
