Our Visitors today
All club pilots present were current and capable; toying valiantly but generally unsuccessfully with weak areas of lift. The K8, Astir and the ASW20 all ‘gave it a go’ with disappointing results, and even our ‘night watchman’, Alan Holland, failed to perform his usual trick of conjuring lift from the dying rays of the sun.
Everyone who flew, flew well - apart from the occasional failure of pilots to ‘lay-off’ sufficiently for the crosswind. This can cause frustrating delays and cost us precious weak links, as well as potentially causing damage to fences. No one who flies at Brentor is a stranger to cross-winds, so let’s all make a real effort to improve our performance please. If in doubt, any instructor will be happy to assist.

At the start of the day our 'Fleetfettlemeister' Chris Kaminski had pointed out that both two-seaters were overdue for their monthly ‘wash and brush up’. So the team’s last activity before cracking open the beers was to give DMX a thorough cleaning and oiling.
