I went up Saturday evening in a skyhawk to do some pattern work and get night current. Winds were 22+ knots, but right down the runway. This skyhawk has a fairly new engine (maybe 200 hours on it I think) and power flow exhaust so It's got a little more umph at the moment. Started with a short field take off. That stready wind really made it short. LOL. Climb out was over 1000 fpm . Of course down wind was really quick. And the base legs were down right funny. Had to hold at least a 45 degree angle to track straight. There wasn't really a turn to final, just more of an "add power and fly that-a-way now" . Got in 6 landings total and did some slow flight as well. When flying slow flight into the wind I really wished the bird had a gps to check the ground speed.
