I was almost right in my route.
Apparently, Biggin are now allowing solo cross country qualifiers but still not student or solo circuits
So it'll likely be Biggin to Lydd to Southend and back, via Margate to make up the miles
Just reading some of the more recent comments on SD regarding Southend, it sounds like you get a free frisking with every visit!
Busy (ish) commercial airport with marshaling and touchy feely security. Can't wait...
In other news, I had a lesson on Sunday and we did diversions for the first time. First one I started sending us out to sea via Rochester instead of over Kent but I quickly realised (thank you local knowledge) and re-diverted.
After that, they went pretty darn well; arriving on time and pretty much on top of where I needed to be.
Flying, checking altitudes with class A just above, watching traffic, keeping an ear out for radio, keeping level in 25kt winds, drawing a line, measuring an angle, reading down for a speed, oh and flying again... Wow that's a lot of my brain taken up!!
