Dartmoor Gliding News-Friday 1st April 2016

April fools day! Good time to start a new job. Of course the joke was on all of us – the weather looked most unfriendly. A nasty shock after the previous day when conditions were booming; the national ladder shows two 500 km flights claimed – pretty good for March.

Despite that Luke Bearcroft enjoyed an introduction to gliding flying the simulator, following my short induction.

The only flying today was in the simulator where the sun always shines
Unfortunately there was no flying, but one very important job did get done – clearing all the alluvial matter from the apron in front of the hangar. Many a barrow load cleared away by several members who pitched in and worked very hard to clear it all up.
