22 June 2017 - 6 training flights in 1 hour - beat that!

Winds 270/11, cloudbase 1200ft to start. Cold front to the NW passing through during the afternoon.

Plenty of helicopter activity as HeliAir transported to and from Ascot. Jim in the tug did a grand job co-ordinating helicopter departures and arrivals to the South and making sure gliding operations didn't conflict - well done Jim.  

Bob, Jack and others planned a trip to Goodwood, and set off after lunch.

  Deep concentration required
Meanwhile Jo Shepherd had groundschool (Airbrakes and Approach control) and then went out to practise. Well, he got the landings so precise the tug could simply swing in front and off we went again. 6 circuits in 60 minutes - pretty impressive.
