Neil Croxford goes solo at Stratford on Avon Gliding Club

Today Neil Croxford, father of junior member Richard, flew his first solo flight in a glider.

Despite a wet (but thankfully quickly drying) field, the decision was made to fly. After being put through the mill by Allan W, Neil was briefed for solo in K-13 G-CHSM.

Well done Neil!
