HDFC Navigation Trial Jan 2015

by Ray Lind

 

In place of our Pilot Proficiency Day in December, we traditionally hold a Navigation Trial. This exercise will continue into Jan and Feb 2015, if necessary to allow as many pilots as possible to participate. 

 

This is the proposed Navigation Trial exercise. Pilots can contact Ray Lind on T: 0428 820 698 or E: captain@hdfc.com.au when they have completed their preparation and book a time on one of the aircraft.

 

  • Prepare a flight plan for the aircraft you intend to fly.

  • You will carry a passenger(s) on a flight to the northwest of Port Macquarie.

  • Departure YPMQ - destination YPMQ

  • Pilots can use the Foxbat or the CTLS if they are endorsed. Alternatively a GA aircraft of your choice may be used.
