Flight for Range and Endurance

This training, Flight for range and endurance, is included to the Private Pilot Licence program according Transport Canada.

For the training we used North VFR exit from CYHU (St Hubert airport). This video contains GPS track data that you will see time to time and it will show you where we are.

At the first time in my life I landed the aircraft at sunset – in low light condition. Additionally there was a significant side wind from the right . We worried that landing will be after sunset… I landed the aircraft at official daytime, but taxied during (official) nighttime 🙂

The video divided into chapters (see below). You can watch most interested moments for you!
