As members turned up the aircraft were readied and towed to the east end.
|Towing the gliders to the launch point at 9:30|
|Alan and Richard ready to fly.|
|Peter with the K8|
|James Cargin with Richard|
James Cargin with Richard was kept busy flying with Barry Green, John O’Connell and Dave Downton. After a simulated power failure on the first flight of the day and a subsequent practice break, Barry was cleared to fly the K8. Good to see you back solo Barry. John had a couple of flights with the ASI covered to try and get over his reliance on the instrument. His upper air flying is improving and approaches and landings are also improving. Keep up the good work John. Dave had a couple of good circuits and a cable break practice. He will also be re-soloing shortly.
Returning member Angie Liversedge had three flights with Martin. Her skills are returning and is now doing all the flying
|Angie happy to be back in the front seat.|
The twin astir made a brief appearance and was flown by Phil Hardwick and Martin Broadway.
We managed a surprising 35 flights. Thanks must go to Heather for retrieving all day again and the various winch drivers who kept things moving. After all was packed away we celebrated the belated birthday of Barry last week and his re-solo with a quick beer before heading home.
