I did make up for it by controlling for 13hrs 13mins yesterday (not bad when I was rostered for 11). A ...

Saturday Afternoon in Wellington

Today was a planned day of flying NZWN-YSSY-NZWN.

Re: Time Zone Fixer

FS Realtime has been in my Toolbox since the first release.

Indeed, great night and it was so nice to be back in the air and to have a Saturday night off work in which to fly. Well done everyone.
