Saturday 29th December
With the wind varying between WSW and SW at 15kts we were able to do a mix of training and checkflights today. Aerotows were a rather lively, right up to 4000'. No obvious sign of wave but the clouds (which formed from about 2500') were generateing sufficient lift to extend the flights - very much 'in & out' stuff though. Peak wind gusts of around 30kts made speed control and monitoring a key feature of every approach today!
