I added a small magnet before someone mentioned squeezing the tube. There is some concern about having a magnet in the baggage compartment in proximity to the magnetometer. I have checked compass calibration on the ground and not a problem...

Default Prettiest Day of the Year...

I didnít want to start a new thread, so Iíll stick this hereÖ

For about as long as I can remember I have had a compulsion to judge the weather and in particular to try to pick the prettiest day of the year.

So, this morning I fired up the 12 and headed south for a three-airport round-robin. Did all the compass points. Sparse clouds with bases right at 2500 MSL and easy to climb on top. Visibility literally unlimited. I could see the Canadian shoreline (70nm) from Northern Ohio at pattern altitude.

I think today is the prettiest day of the year so far. In the spring itís easy to pick a good day; no rain - good day. As the season turns to summer, itís a subtle difference that allows the current day to outshine all previous days. Today is that dayÖ

Yep... yesterday was just about the prettiest day we'd seen around here, too. Scattered little clouds at 5-6K MSL, not bad below, smooth as glass above, winds calm until maybe 6K where they were no more than 10 knots or so. Couldn't have asked for a better day, other than it being a little warm down low.
