Tomek and N6ZP
I was scheduled to complete my check-out, but unfortunately the weather in the practice area did not allow it. The only thing we did were gliding approaches, which I actually found rather hard. 6ZP did not want to get down and it insisted on flying, so I had couple of attempts before I figured out its glide characteristics. I guess the contributing factor might have been that it was idling at over 1000 RPM!

In the evening I went up to do 3 full stop landings to be current for carrying passengers (Marta mainly) over night. I always enjoyed night flying and this time I wasn't disappointed either.
