It’s been a pretty wet February, and March. Into this first part of April, we’ve had just a few days with “decent” flying weather, but those fell on a day that I couldn’t fly. I am hoping that by the middle of this month (as forecast by the weather prognosticators), we will actually “spring” into great sunny skies. And the other thing, with the goofy Bay Area weather, we seem to have had a lot more of those “winds 15 gusting to 30 knots”. Just a bit out of the demonstrated crosswind limits of a lot of general aviation planes. Gotta get flying soon though… the ADS-B install is “ticking away”, and the annual inspection comes due May 1st. So far, I’ve gotten all the necessary maintenance items gathered – oil filter, air filter, oil…etc. This will be my first annual with this particular Cessna (I’ve done dozens – owner assist – on the 150M and the Sundowner). The log books show most everything has been done by the previous owner (prop overhaul, new Skytech starter, new tires, new MX300 radio, new battery….). My A/P twin brother keeps saying “you stole this plane”…. It’s great being back into flying after an 8 year “vacation”, and my medical “event” last year.
