First Leg

Written by Phil on . Posted in Latest

I completed the first leg of The Around The World Challenge. From Blackpool to Carlisle in the UK.  At just over 80 miles i thought this would be quite simple. For the Challenge you can only use 3 different types of plane i chose the Cessna Caravan. I have to admit i haven’t flown this or an aircraft like it for many years. Anyway nothing to complicated but just after take off i was looking around the cockpit and just above my head to the right i flicked a fuel switch which made the engine die. Dropped altitude to keep the speed up and i managed to get it going again. It’s surprising how much being recorded during the flight can add pressure. Great stuff i love it!
