We had a really good turn-out today. Plenty of pilots and an early briefing.
The Chief Flying Instructor conducted a Bronzer Skills Test with Keith L who we are pleased to say passed!
Neil C converted onto the club’s Standard Astir CS77 G-FECO and Chris B converted onto the club’s LS4 G-DEMG.
Some thermal soaring was to be had too! Andy B set off solo in K13 G-DCBW and managed to contact a solitary street of cumulus clouds, pushing out to Long Marston and over 3,000feet. Not bad for October!
The other K13, K21, Junior, LS4 and Astir took up chase and for a while the entire club fleet was airborne.
We later de-rigged the club K21 G-CGAG into the workshop for it’s ARC maintenance.
A brilliant day shorted by the return to GMT/UTC time!
The longest flight duration achieved today was 48minutes.
