Just received a quick update from Steve P on our latest ‘doughnut day’ – thanks Steve!

Good day had by all with a very good turn out and brilliant weather.  We flew 19 launches and a total of 5 hrs 56 minutes flying time before rain stopped play around 2:45pm.

The average flight time was 18 mins but there were some long flights by Humphrey, Joe and Steve (51 minutes – which isn’t bad for October!).  The conditions were best between 12pm and 2:30pm with some really good thermals up to 2,200ft.   Pity the rain came so early but it was good while it lasted.

Thanks to Martyn who was duty instructor for the day.   Keep an eye on your emails and the website for updates on future doughnut days.
