December Solo and type conversion

Don't let anyone say that flying slows down or stops over the winter. The weather this weekend has allowed flying to carry on as usual (and with several members using their winter soaring ticket - if you haven't got yours yet its not too late, just ask in the office).

The better weather and sunshine on Sunday enabled Phil Binee to get several training flights in with Richard Crockett and culminated in his first solo. Not to be outdone Nik Markert also converted to the Pegasus. Congratulations to them both.
The rest of us just enjoyed the flying - even if it was a tad chilly.
