Evening Flying..?

Unread post by retiredVTT » Sun Apr 18, 2021 11:28 pm

We have some nice "evening weather " coming this week ...anyone flying..?

Would be a nice change from the continuous cool, damp, generally $=itty weekend weather of late...

Bonus ...the sun will be at your back ...!

Out of curiosity, which evenings look good to you?
Looking at the windfinder report for this week into next, I see very few windows during which flying may be possible and none in the evenings.
One window Tuesday April 20th between 9am and noon
One window at 6am on Sunday, April 25
One window Tuesday April 27th at noon.

These are bleak times, one wonders if it would be better to transition into RC cars!

Not bad! You were right. I guess the wind-reports are not to be trusted around here.
I also flew last evening; no thermals to speak of but it was a relief to get up in the air after such a long span of terrible weather!

Looking sharp! Wish that I had been there! Popped over this evening but by comparison cooler and windier... and no one there!
