Conversion of the TMG PPL to Single Engine turned out to be pretty easy. After just a couple of lessons on the Diamond DA40 at Wings over Holland, Marijke was already up for her exam.

Big compliment to both Cees Quist at Dwarf and the easy handling of the Diamond (and the flying genes of the Wellens family of course); according to the examiner he was positively surprised of the demonstrated skill level.

So, ready to really start using the plane. Beautiful calm winter day, still a bit nervous to take passengers aboard. To increase the comfort feeling, we first made a test flight (just to be extra sure). Then we were ready for the first passenger flight, a local flight over Loosdrecht and her lakes and the picturesque Loenen aan de Vecht.
