We drove over to Waipukurau airfield, home of the Central Hawkes Bay Aero Club, to have a lesson in their Tiger Moth ZK-BEF with their friendly CFI Ross Macdonald.

Very good fun but it did feel very different being buffeted by the wind. We were also using a full nose and mouth mask for using the radio and intercom and which apparently could be connected to an oxygen supply. Not sorted out the landings yet…

We each sat in the back while Ross was in the front. Have to look out of the side for landing/takeoff so there is some view of what’s going on!
