Weekend Weather Prospects

Home » Weekend Weather Prospects

Well, not a great Easter forecast. Saturday looks like a low cloud write-off, so I’ve moved my duty day to Friday, which seems a better prospect.

As for Sunday and Monday, a bit early to say for certain, but I’m sure the No 1’s will update you as the time comes.

The models aren’t in total agreement, but if we go with the more optimistic prediction, Friday looks like an early start, early finish kind of a day, as showers and strengthening easterlies move in during the afternoon. At this stage I’m saying we’ll open the hangar doors at 8:30, but I’ll keep you updated via a WhatsApp message at about 7:15 tomorrow when all the latest model runs will be available.

It’s that “Annual” time of year, so just a few reminders …
Remember your logbook – you always do, I’m sure
Get an annual check form from the office and fill in your hours and launches from the last twelve months and other details. (The form enables you to get part of your annual done on one occasion and the rest on another day).
Bring the form and logbook with you to the flight line
Make sure the checking instructor signs off the completed exercises.
Hand the form back in to the office when it’s fully signed off.
Remember that you can begin your annual checks up to 90 days before the expiry date and maintain that date 12 months on.

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow
