I wondered how long it would be given the excellent conditions in the west of Scotland lately. Let's hope they get a decent flight period up there.

Hi Scott - would you (the local expert) consider this early? I'm wondering if the main flight period may have shifted forward a week or two. I might have to change my plans :)

Cheers,

Hi Pete,
I wouldn't consider myself expert - for that I would suggest Andrew Masterman or Tom Prescott. However, we have been experiencing terrific weather for the last week or so - the question is for how much longer? ;)
