BVM BobCat

New member Phil Mackie of Wimborne MAC flew his BVM BobCat at our Cashmoor field for the first time on the 18th January 2020.  Although quite cold there was a great blue sky with high light cloud to fly across. He had an excellent flight and made an excellent landing after a trial landing approach.

Turbine Power is a JetCat 160. Goes like a scalded cat!  At cruise power the engine is very quiet and the plane is flies very stable.
