After a day relaxing and getting kit prepped yesterday, we took a trip up to the mountain this morning for a shakedown flight.
The plan was for some local thermalling, landing back of the accommodation after we were happy with the tracking system and general equipment set-up. After taking off into a good looking sky, we cruised around just to shake out the rust, base was at just over 8000ft which allowed us to fly out into the flatlands and explore the area with the vultures for a couple of hours before returning to land. I landed at base, then got Dave to land out so we could check the accuracy of the tracking system which worked perfectly.
Tomorrow’s plan Is an out and return to Buga, as a final shakeout before the clients arrive.
