21-23 August - very mixed weather but busy at the club.

Monday, not flyable due to low cloud and light drizzle.

John and Jane spent yet another day in the classroom and we covered a range of topics including the weather and principles of flight. A fun day punctuated with tea and chocolate biscuits.

Tusday, low cloud during the morning and flyable pm. Mike (PPL conversion) spent time in the classroom reviewing the principles of aerotow and spinning before having a go in the simulator. Sadly Mike needed to leave before it became flyable.
The afternoon brought better conditions and Alex Mann continued his PPL conversion, while Richard flew with several of our trial lesson visitors. Lots of smiles at the end of the day.

Alex Mann (above) to put a face to the name. Alex is doing some extensive aviation  training and building hours for a CPL. He sees gliding as a useful skillset to help his career.

Wednesday. Another cloudy morning clearing in the afternoon. Nick Markert spent some time in the classroom looking at the theoretical aspects of basic instruction and then we managed to get out on to the field to put the principles into practice. Richard entertained several students with his instruction, lots of giggling and fun.

The day ended with the evening group taking over and using the pleasant evening conditions.
