The Free Flight team has just returned from their second long haul trip of the season to Colombia and as I write this blog it’s hard to put down in words quite what an amazing place it is. Before we get started lets go through the trip statistics. We flew twelve out of thirteen days and clocked up 25 hours of airtime. Some of the pilots collected over 150k of distance spread over the two weeks flying; including some declared triangle tasks of up to 75k. A few personal bests were also beaten, so a big congratulations to those pilots.


O.K so we know winter has taken hold in the UK and some of you will be stuck in snow, but without wanting to rub it in we wanted to let you know that the 2015 season at Free Flight Academy has got off to a great start. We are currently just coming to the end of our second ‘Pilots of the Caribbean’ tour in the Dominican Republic and wanted to share some of our highlights.
