Hi guys,

Just a note to let my fellow Xcalibur pilots my instructor and I flew together again this week (today). I worked a lot on landing approaches and go arounds. That eventually worked into full approaches to 4 full stop landings. I have earned my AMA waiver!!

Weather was very nice but the reasonable quartering headwind we enjoyed turned into a full 90 degree crosswind further testing my skills as wind speed crept up.

Cheers!

I couldn't do the maiden on my X, the jetronics retract valve keeps giving me problems, done with it! I will now install the retract valve that came with the kit, maiden now pushed for next week.

have decided to simply use standard non-return valve from festo, as i have in other jets... but i will keep on searching for better and cleaner (neater) solution....
