Saturday 21 February....

.......and spring was in the air for Booker's glider pilots, with over 50 launches and at one point three tugs working to meet the demand. Mark Wolfe (pictured) converted to the Junior and John Portwin completed his Bronze flight test.

As well as the usual mix of trial lessons and instructing, various aerobatics sorties were flown, including one by Rob Kehr who has really taken to this branch of flying. And a number of private owners took the opportunity of blue skies and sunshine to rig and get some air under their wings.

Next Saturday we will have another in our series of 'winter' lectures, this one by Denis Campbell on Cross Country Error Management, not to be missed.
