Flying Report 5/12/17

We had a good day today with the wind as expected from S.W. to West and just enough to give us launches to 1700′. It stayed dry all day with a cloudbase of around 3000′.

Unfortunately we did not get much sun but it was nice when it occasionally did show itself. The visibility was however very good, not only could we see Bredon Hill and the Malverns very clearly you could also see the Black Mountains in south Wales !

We started to fly nice and early and it was just as well we did as the winch had a wrap up later in the afternoon which took a long time to clear. Many thanks to those who stopped behind to make sure it was all clear and repaired for the weekend. It did take a long time and it was dark before the winch came back to be put away.

There were 2 flights of note, both in the Junior.

Statistics………………………

Total Launches……………………..20

Total Flight Time……………………2 hrs. 34mins.

Thanks to Tony P. for running the day and getting us going early, it really pays off when the days are short.
