Today's instructor in charge was Mike Sloggett once again. Mike is always a welcome visitor. His father was one of the original club members and Mike's own history with the club goes back a very long way. Mike was assisted today by Rick Wiles who was tasked with flying with today's visitors.
We had four visitors today, Louisa Pearson, Simon Romaine, Jo Batchelor and Tony Sullivan who all left the airfield with smiles on their faces.
There was a great deal of effort from the solo pilots to find some rising air to soar on but it was not until the last flight of the day when Dene "Scratch" Hitchin, practicing from the back seat of the K13, managed to find a solitary thermal to extend his flight to a day winning 11 minutes. The other flight of interest today was by Matt Wiles who converted ( re-converted?) to the K8.
