Ahmedabad, India – Course

Ok so its February, time to get the 2016 show season off to a start! And what a way to do it, travelling to Ahmebadad – India!

Unlike most shows that I have done before, this time I was going in representation of Powerbox-Systems to help the locals install and setup their Powerbox and iGyro units, followed by some in flight setup and hopefully teach them along the way.

With three flights to get there (Alicante-Madrid-Dubai-Ahmebadad) it took a full day, arriving at 4am ready to get to work at the field!

Having arrived in India I met up with my great hosts for the week, Udayab and Varun.  We then went to the flying site where we would spend most of the following week, programming, adjusting and over all flying all of them.

The week went by very quicky, with very comfortable temperatures, good food and brilliant company with new friends.

As well as the serious part of the trip, there where many crazy moments when all was let loose, such as flying the 50cc plane while sitting down, or flying a 100cc plane under and through the covered pitts area!

By the end of the week, as well as having the planes well programmed and set up, the level of flying had increased significantly, performing many new manouvers, which even though further practice will help smoothen them out, the main part-actually being able to do the manouvers- had succesfully been completed, the whole reason for the trip.

Overall, a great success, and looking forward to repeating the experience.
