An instructive Saturday

Busy day today. Graham Saw's popular aerobatics course (first Saturday of the month throughout the winter) was fully subscribed, with various members discovering humpty bumps and quarter clovers and other unusual attitudes. Meanwhile in the briefing room, a group of Bronze trainees (and two AssCat candidates) were learning about principles of flight from Symeon Economou, who gave an excellent exposition of the subject. Various points provoked heated discussion, afterwards some of those attending went off to take up Matt Cook's offer of seeing how it works in practice.
Next week's subject is Navigation, with Gary Nuttall, 10am Saturday 12 Jan, in the clubhouse.
Club and course flying continues as normal, as long as gravity keeps on working.
