I spent some time down near there in Victorville. Yes, a bit windy and HOT. I didn't do any flying then, but after I moved to North Dakota, if you didn't like flying in the wind, you didn't fly...

Ditto Kansas. My dad always said if they would set on the ground, we could fly and very often did. I remember they had the pattern masters here and they were all afraid to fly because the wind was 15-25, we asked if anybody was going to fly and were told NO! So we asked if we could, got funny looks and were told sure it's your airplane. So I have flown in the pattern masters with an old Top Filght Headmaster with an Enya 29 and a PCS radio and did quite well I might add. Dad flew a VK Cherokee with a Merco twin plug 61, he too did quite well.
