3 August - very windy and very gusty

Winds at 1000ft QNH forecast at 35 knots with gusts of 10-15 knots.

Just a little too much for the early pilots to practise their flying skills, so it was into the classroom for the second day.

Topics covered were Stalling, Daily Inspections, Airbrakes and Approach control, Circuit Planning and practical navigation in preparation for the Bronze C exam. It was great to see so many enthusiastic trainees joining in - good fun.
