Well there you go then! heliaviator, out of interest how did you make your approach in - over the trees or over the lake? How did you find it?

OVER THE LAKE BOTH TIMES WITH A SLIGHT TAIL WIND
THOSE TREES ARE VERY HIGH BUT YOU WOULD HAVE THE OPTION TOO OVERSHOOT THE PAD AND TRACK BACK

Yes, same here (although it was not me flying). I wouldn't feel too comfortable going in over those tree, just have to watch the airspeed and rate of descent coming in over the lake with a tail wind. Now I've seen it I'd feel quite comfortable with the approach provided the wind's not too high!

Well, I'm still up for it.

What about 30th October - the "End of Summer" fly-in?

I would love to say yes to October, but I'll have to see how far on top of my CPL work I am! Exams coming up - uh oh!

When anyone next goes to the Vyrnwy could they please try to get some arial shots of the dam at the South East end of the lake?

My canoe club often paddles the Vyrnwy and we start just below the dam (at the measuring weir) by the Craft Centre.

Thanks,

Craig

Hi Rotorcraig

I have managed to find a couple of really good photos of when we went to The Lake on our way back from Snowdonia.

Here they are Smile

James, I'm afraid we won't be able to make it next week. I will unfortunately be preoccupied with CPL work, as much as I'd love to be at the lake.
