State comps, day 3

The last day of 2007 is one which will be remembered by several pilots flying in the SA State Comps at Waikerie.

A 3 hour AAT task, Waikerie – Morkala Repeater (60 km circle), Alawoona (20 km circle) – Peebinga (50 km circle) – Waikerie was set, with a forecast of high climbs under Cu.

3 days of competition, all with > 10,000 Ft climbs with >10 Knots climb providing some excellent conditions with good speeds.

Peter Paine flew another 300 Km. Keith Willis flew the PW-5 to Bordertown and back (possibly another PW-5 record) before undertaking some local flying late in the day – in good conditions – just to keep his average up.
