Deffo the winter for me :-)

A) because when its silky, it's super silky :-)

and B) because I have less students and more time.

I also like the visuals... Misty Valley, frosty trees... thick Inversion layers and so on.

SW :D

Again - straight from my flightlog spreadsheet, as previously mentioned in other recent postings....

% of total flying hours

Spring 23.33%

Summer 47.03%

Autumn 18.86%

Winter 10.78%

Or more accurately by month-

Jan 3.27%

Feb 3.22%

Mar 3.84%

Apr 9.41%

May 10.07%

Jun 14.65%

Jul 16.45%

Aug 15.93%

Sep 8.60%

Oct 7.45%

Nov 2.81%

Dec 4.29%

Collated over 5 years- almost 500hrs flying.

Not jsut inluenced by weather, the fact that i have almost 2 weeks off work for Christmas in Dec/Jan, and 2 weeks off in August account for high percentages in those months.

As above. Love the long thermic flights. Plenty of bumps to keep you awake and too old to freeze anymore unless there's a gain of £ 25 per hour.

Winter is a good time to learn though. Cold makes shorter flights, so plenty of landing and takeoffs. Time to get used to the air and ready for the thermals in six months . If you're thinking of taking lessons....get started now!!
