My weekend.
My Angel Flight Saturday was supposed to be an easy 3-hour jaunt to Louisiana. It turned into 4.5 hours, including 3 hours of IMC. I need a bigger plane - one that can climb above 4000 ft with 2 people, a full baggage compartment and full fuel.

Or I need to lose 100lbs.

Sunday, we took my KNS-80 and HSI out to Hobby to test it. After 3 hours of fiddling, Michael thinks he knows what needs to be done - it works okay on east and west, but the linearity is all off, so it won't ever center on North or South - the closest it will come to South is about 210.

Works great on the localizer, though.

I gamed a lot this weekend. I'm dragging this morning, but I don't know why - I was in bed by 10 and asleep by midnight, and I didn't get up until almost 10 this morning.

The trouble is with getting a bigger plane is it'll cost that much more.
Or get something way overpowered. I took someone on a quick 'demo flight' in the Auster on the weekend. 1000 feet by the end of the runway, and cruising at 2000 RPM - but that's what you get when there's a 160hp motor in a plane made for 90hp :-)
