Booker goes to Talgarth

On Saturday a hardy band of Booker pilots headed west to Black Mountains Gliding Club to learn about ridge flying. Tug UU has come along for a holiday too. So far we have flown every day, doing check flights and getting to know the local scenery. For those of us used to flying over flat land it's a new and interesting experience. Our hosts are very friendly and welcoming, full of helpful advice. The weather on Saturday was superb, enabling flights along to Hay Bluff and down the Cwmdu valley to Crickhowell. Today we did a few more check flights, and Jim had a go before we decided that gliding was more of a spectator sport and the toys went away. This is a fantastic place to play, the scenery is magnificent, especially when viewed from close up, and it's a great opportunity to learn new skills.
