How often do you get to fly in dreary Uk


Recommended Posts

A good question and topical for a large number of pilots I guess.

This year has been dreadful for weather with all the repeated storms and displaced jet stream.

I know pilots that have had 4-8 flights but I have had only one this year due to other factors, including a cataract operation, an aversion to flying in freezing conditions and a field that is too wet.

I had 47 flights in 2021 and 33 in 2020. If you are working and that limits you to flying at the weekends for half the year that can limit opportunities a lot.

Generally if you want to enjoy it about 10mph tops, with low gust figures on top.

Though 5 gusting 10/12 is doable with a bit of rock and roll on takeoff. Others will go out in stronger winds but you will get bounced around.
