Aerobatics and another 1st Solo

Mixed weather with Friday 4th March being sunny, calm and warm(ish) with convection up to 1,600 ft and enabling several soaring flights of up to an hour.

Saturday came around with low cloudbase and a biting easterly wind - ideal conditions for the Aerobatics course! The morning started with a bit of hanger shuffling to enable putting ECZ back into its trailer ready for the Windsor Outdoor Show next week where the club has a stand and more excitingly putting the wings back onto the motor glider in readiness for it being back in operation very soon.

Once the cloudbase had risen sufficiently the Aerobatics flying took place in anger with launches to 3,000 ft.

Whilst all this was going on Marc Selzer was being put through his paces and later in the day was sent solo for the first time - Congratulations to Marc on his 1st solo.
