Frosty first solo
Congratulations to Lloyd Batting who started his training 3 weeks ago and today did his first solo. He does have some experience from flying radio controlled scale models, but it's a bit different when you're inside looking out.

Also flying today was Paul, making use of the IntroPlus course he was given as a gift. After two launches to 4000ft, during which he progressed to spinning, he was completely sold on how fantastic gliding is and went away with the leaflet about the Winter Basic Course.
It was a very picturesque day and ideal for training as the air was, according to Geoff the tug pilot, 'smooth as silk'.
