Dartmoor Gliding News-Saturday 9th March 2019

The weather over the last 2 weeks has thwarted all attempts at flying. Hopefully, this cannot last much lomger. On a brighter note the evenings are drawing out and the thermal soaring season is not far away.

Does the airfield resemble a ghost town? Tumbleweeds racing down the runway in the gale force winds?  No, not at all. The resilient Dartmoor soarers have been getting on with their projects.
