Dartmoor Gliding News-Wednesday 15th August 2018

The RASP was showing low level cloud at the start of the day lifting to 1800 feet by the early afternoon.

Today was going to be busy but with Instructors Mike Sloggett and Mike Jardine on site we were up to the task. We had a one day course and 5 trial flights to fly but the low cloud was determined to stay making the day shorter than we would like.

First off was Terry Matthews who had 3 of his one day course flights , it was decided to continue the training on another day with improved conditions and we look forward to the return of Terry to complete his training.

A birthday flight was taken by Norman Jelley with Mike Sloggett.

Norman and Mike
Friends Zillah Martin and Aryanna Japhayel both had flights with improving views over the moors as the cloud base lifted to 1100 feet.

The final trial flights were for sisters Jamie Carney and Josephine Carney who were holidaying in Brentor with family.

Then it was down to training with club members and some solo flights in the club K8.

Whilst it was a day of practicing circuits a good day was had by all with a great team effort.

Thanks to all involved.

Mike Jardine
