On Sunday, our French member Anastassia flew her first solo glider flight at Stratford on Avon Gliding Club.
Anastassia was checked out during the day for her first solo flight by senior Stratford instructor Barry K.
Anastassia flew her first solo sailplane flight in Stratford Gliding Club’s K21 G-CGAG.
She said afterwards that she was thrilled to have been joined in a thermal by a red kite. She flew Round and Round with the soaring bird, a species which has recently colonised our rural airfield.
Well done Anastassia!
