However, as it was flyable early on and our intrepid trainees were keen to test themselves ( or instructors ? ) against the challenging conditions, it was game on. After all too brief a flying window, the wind and gusts dramatically increased, the low cloudbase lowered even more, and it started to drizzle; it was all over.
So, off to the clubhouse, cosy and warm thanks to the woodburner, for tea and lectures. Today’s lectures, delivered by Don were “An Introduction to Notams”, “An Introduction to the Half Million Chart”, and “Approach Control” all designed for and delivered to a very attentive group of pre solo pilots.
