Booker heads to Scotland

Booker's annual expedition to Aboyne, home to Deeside Gliding Club, has got off to a good start with three days of wave. Veterans have enjoyed seeing familiar sites, and new members Simon and David have been seen grinning from ear to ear after being introduced to the magic of wave. 

Meanwhile back at Abingdon, work is progressing on the temporary hangar.

Return to flying

 As from 29th March we have been able to fly again, although only solo - two seater flying returns on 12th April. We were unable to go on our usual Spring expedition to Lleweni Parc because of the latest lockdown, but we are currently enjoying a mini expedition to Chiltern Park, near Wallingford, as guests of Dennis Pearson of Chiltern Airsports. This is because we are being prevented from flying at Wycombe Air Park because of a commercial dispute between the airfield manager (CEO of Heliair) and the airfield owner (Bucks County Council), where we are caught in the crossfire.

While we attempt to get the situation resolved, we are making the most of our time at Chiltern Park - getting current again and exploring the local area, as can be seen from the pics below.
