Isle of Man TT Race Day Trip.
8th June 2017
Take Flight have been attending the Isle of Man TT for the past few years and this year we had a record 10 club aircraft and 35 people take the 160 mile trip to Douglas airport on the Isle of Man for the Senior TT race, the culmination of the two week event. From a Cessna 152 to a PA-46 our pilots, their guests and student pilots met at Wellesbourne for a pre 7am departure with Hana getting up at 4am to prepare bacon sandwiches for the crew.
There's no other race like the Isle of Man TT races held on the challenging 37 mile plus course with its bends, bumps, walls, manhole covers and telegraph poles to mention just a few hazards. The trip was hailed as a big success with all getting back in good time before dark the same day.
