Seems to be gusty all over the UK - I'm not surprised you can't fly today solouk! I live just down the road from Biggin and there is one hell of a wind blowing outside! if anyone is flying nearby, look out for a low-flying German Shepherd as it's time for his walk...

Hovering......I still can remember thinking I was never going to get it.I had a student not to long ago who hovered really well in a few lessons.I noticed he wasnt doing the death grip on the cyclic and said his hand looked nice and relaxed......he said he was treating it like a shitty nappie...good advise to all new pilots.

Still remember one of the written comments from my instructor when I was learning to hover - "Stayed within the confines of the airfield" - and I learn't to fly at Bristol International Airport !!!!
