How to be fit to fly

The briefing room was packed yesterday for William Parker's Bronze talk on the human factors which affect our flying, including how to breathe above 10,000ft, the importance of eating and drinking, not flying when you feel ill, and an in depth discussion of 'in flight plumbing' for men.

The next two weeks will be devoted to weather:

Saturday 25 Jan - Meteorology - where weather comes from, what makes clouds, what a cold front is, and much more - Jane Moore

Saturday 1 Feb - forecasting for x-c soaring, including the mysterious tephigram - Jim White. Bring a ruler and 4 coloured pens (red, black, green, blue)
