Today's forecast provided the first challenge of the day with strong(ish) gusty NW winds with frequent showers giving way to longer periods of rain later. The aircraft provided the next challenge with K13 G-DDMX being off line for some TLC. To mitigate this I completed Colin's weighing of (new to us) K13 G-DCCY which after a thorough DI and test flight was released for club use.

After clearing CCY to fly, I used it to fly with CFI Mark Courtney for my annual revalidation flights. This we completed in two flights including the usual practice cable break. This allowed me to continue in the aircraft with today's One Day Course candidate Steven Wright who was spending the day with us.
