Central Plateau 2010

New Zealand,   30 October 2010 – 6 November 2010

Day 1, Monday 1st Nov

So they day started looking a little grey, but the RASP forecast model says its going to be a good day. So rather than look out the window, we set a decent task and will see how it goes.

So far, the day is starting late as expected. The grid launch started at 13:45, its now 2:15 and everyone is in the air. The strong easterly flow from yesterday has dropped to about 5 to 10 kts, the grey overcast is breakingand its starting to look quite good.

We are expecting better conditions to the west, with the day going quite late so a 200km / 300 km AAT with minimum 3hrs time has been set.
