OH-YHK, PIK-15 Hinu on the apron at Pieksämäki airport EFPK

I had the chance to get my tailwheel endorsement onboard a PIK-15 Hinu that was designed and crafted in Finland. It was built to tow sailplanes, but it is also possible to use it as a trainer since it is a two-seater.

This was also my first acquaintance with an experimental category aircraft that was built out of wood.

After getting my tailwheel endorsement, Timo, my instructor, towed a few sailplanes
Runway 33 at EFPK, same number as my class number back in the Finnish Aviation Academy
