I need somebody to sit in the right-hand seat of a C172 tomorrow to approximate the weight of an examiner. Anybody want to do high-altitude maneuvers on a beautiful clear day?

I might be game if you're flying out of the island and not going to be too late.. alternately, I have a friend who trained to be a pilot in Poland, but doesn't have a license because she couldn't scrounge up the cash for the exams and there's a chance she'd be interested (and could probably approximate a little more than the weight of an examiner)..

Sure. Aircraft is C-FKWO, departing the island at 10 AM tomorrow. Back on the ground before noon. Can you make that?

Plan is to fly out over Claremont and climb to 8000'. That will be the same air density as flying a couple thousand feet over Utah, which is where I'll be in a couple weeks. Will then practice steep turns, slow flight and stalls so that I won't embarrass myself for the checkout in Utah when I go to rent the plane.

Sounds doable; how early before the scheduled departure should I arrive at the airport ferry?

Let's aim to be on the 945 ferry. So please arrive at the ferry terminal at least a few minutes before that. Thanks.

That's totally doable. I'll see you then.
