This morning about 20 club members attended William Parker's lecture on field landings and gliding safety. There were lots of observations and questions. After the lecture a number stayed on to share past experience and discuss the challenges and finer points of picking fields.
The lecture also included a demonstration of the new Booker Gliding Club brain mapping system that will be available for pilots to use prior to a flight. This equipment is now available for use in the briefing room. As the photo shows, William bravely volunteered to show us all how it worked.
