On 9 July we hosted a group of about 20 power pilots from White Waltham and Denham with experience ranging from pre-solo to airline pilot. They were given the opportunity to try general flying in a K13, aerobatics in the K21 and a taster of cross country in the Duo Discus.

"Fantastic, I wish I'd done this 50 years ago."
"It's been a super day, quite an eye-opener."
"Best fun you can have with your clothes on."
Yesterday a few more pilots who had been unable to join the first trip came along, they all had a great time, and commented how valuable it was to have a better idea of how gliders fly and operate - they don't just cluster round gliding sites!
