First in the air was John Ashworth for his one day course which went well,
A trial flight for Dave Dupont with instructor Martin Cropper
Next in the air we're family visitors Matthew Bell flying with myself .....
..... and his father in law Clive Elks flying with Martin
catching thermals to 3000 feet and 30 minutes in the air
Scratch on Approach in K13-GDDMX for a hangar landing at the end of a busy day.
