24 August - let's go flying

The weather much improved for flying, but not a particularly great soaring day.

The 2 seat trainers were busy all day with loads of training and trial lesson flights. Light westerly winds and weak thermals were a good combination for local soaring.

Chris eyeing up a potential new vehicle? This Chevrolet truck appeared in the car park, it will suit Chris we think.

Jacqui Warner getting ready to experience her first flight in a glider, Jacqui quickly learnt the basic skills and found herself flying around with some guidance from the instructor.

Well done Alex Mann for his first solo in a glider. Alex has a PPL and has been on a conversion course. For Alex this is part of his broader training to become a professional pilot.

A great day, more tomorrow?
