I finally got the Swift into the air on December 31st after a month without flying. No serious reasons, jut a combination of work and weather.
Yesterday dawned with just high clouds and little to no wind and was forecast to stay that way so I headed for the airport.
First I plugged in my little ceramic heater and let it do its job of blowing hot air into the bottom of the cowling. I knew that was going to take a while since the outside air temperature was only in the high 30s at that point so I went across the way to a friend’s hangar to hang out for a while.
