Chris Holmes Cruising at 3500 maximum as per flight briefing. Full tanks in order to refrain from refueling stop. Flying through the mountains. Flying A2A Piper Cherokee. I was cruising at 115kts and not 75kts. Windy, rainy day does not make flying a light aircraft fun.
Ian Harrison That was the general idea, Chris.
Chris Holmes Haha.... you surprised me on that one. Still enjoyed the flight a lot :) Catching up on flights today as I was unable to fly yesterday. Been stuck at the dance competition from 9am to this morning at 3am
