Dartmoor Gliding News-Sunday 20th December 2020

Although the forecast predicated sunshine and showers, a pitch inspection at around 1000 showed that, despite the reinforced area at the east end being capable of supporting launching and landing, the rest of the field was too waterlogged for safe operations, both equipment (principally the winch and people).  

Although showers skirted the airfield the ground was too waterlogged for flying.

Nonetheless, we pitched-in to help Colin get started with the CofA for K-8 FXB, preparing the fuselage and removing the instrument panel for calibration.  

And so it only remains to say Merry Christmas to our Sunday readers - Instructor cover will be available on 27 December - let’s hope we can get flying as soon as possible following the festive season.
