Dartmoor Gliding - Stefi's Summer

I have recently received some pictures from Stefi Guiu, the Romanian student who has been flying with us over the last 2 years.

This summer she has a glider of  her own, a Grob Speed Astir, named "Speedy" apparently. For the uninitiated, this is a flapped, racing version of the Astir.

So, up to mid August she has converted to flaps, flown about 15 hours and now only needs a 50km cross country to complete her Silver "C".

Soaring at 1450 metres
Not much cloud about
Approaching a thermal cloud
Somewhere in Romania
Stefi aerotowing
Away into the blue
