26 June Hammersmith Academy here to try gliding

Light winds , blue thermals with the occasional haze caps.

A good turnout of club pilots taking advantage of the conditions. Blue is not popular, so good to see so many giving it a go.

Plenty of sunscreen, hats and water needed today.

Hammersmith Academy arrived around 10am and spent the day with us.

The pupils have all been first class at the Academy and being rewarded with a flight in a glider. We were all impressed by their obvious interest in aviation and the discipline showm on the airfield.

Thank you Hammersmith Academy, we hope you all enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to meeting again.

Many thanks to the helpers, tug pilots Jim and Rocky, and instructors Chris and Bob and groundcrew handled single handed by Maddi, without your support the day would not have been a success.
