The early morning of Sat 11th saw a thunder and lightening storm passing over the Qualicum airport, however the weather soon turned to provide a beautiful day to fly 26 kids.

INTRODUCTION
Birds have been a potential hazard to aircraft since the beginning of air travel.

I ran this section by both my editor Mike Busch and GAMI's George Braly for their comments, and I'd like to quote George's response here:

Cruisin' Along

As far as the engine is concerned, we could skip this "cruise" section entirely. By just leaving everything alone (or just tweaking the CHT) when reaching cruise altitude, you're all set in the "LOP go fast" mode. But there are other considerations. You may not want the "go fast" mode — you may need more range, for example.
