Rick and Peter were todays instructors.
It was a busy hot day where early on in the day the very promising looking skies simply did not deliver, and then things changed and there were some very happy people having longer flights, Steve Fletcher in his Cirrus showing off with a 2-hours plus flight towards the end of the day.

We had a birthday boy, Mike Bennett, who gracefully accepted a rendition of “Happy Birthday to You” sung by club members alongside gifts of sweets and crisps before flying started. Mike was later stunned into silence by his birthday gift from his wife, a voucher for a Spitfire flight at Biggin Hill!

Thanks to Heather for services above and beyond retrieve driving (all day on a very hot day) and Barry for manning the winch for most of the day (supported by Mike when Barry went for his flight).
