Dee had wanted to to fly the London Helicopter Routes for a bit of fun.
Common sense prevailed and on this first flight Giles (above) came along to help with the route
and radio, as it is important to stay on the prescribed route.
We planned to do 2 of the routes on this flight, continuing North off the first one,
to pick up Alex from her local football club.
So, H9 from Oxshott East to Northwood (through London Heathrow)
Sadly no pics for this leg, as I was flying and Giles forgot to get the Camera out...doh!
Then H9 Northwood - Gutteridge, H10 to Barnes, H4 out to the Isle of Dogs.
G-FEDA on the pitch at Sun Postal Sports FC
All aboard...going for start!
Sadly, Val's camera battery died, so no photo of lift off!..
After Take-off, routing around the Grove Hotel,
who refused us landing unless we were staying there.

Tower of London
Back of my head...in the turn...as we tracked along the Thames
Canary Wharf, Dome &Thames Barrier
The Dome & London City Airport
Turning South after the Thames Barrier toward Redhill.
Thanks to Alex for taking the pics;
Thanks to Mr Tibbles for letting us land at the Sun Postal Sports FC pitch;
& Thanks to Giles for coming along and showing me the ropes.
