Flying Report 16/8/15

We had a great day of flying today despite the early spreadout.

Every aircraft was out of the hangar and flying including our new Grob Astir CS 77 G-FECO. Those who have flown it have reported that they very much enjoyed it.

Brilliant achievements were also had by Keith L who reached Silver height (1000m height gain) and his two hour duration towards Bronze X/C.

Junior pilot Jesal P achieved his two hour duration flight with a brilliant bit a scratching in weak lift under heavy spread-out, needing to stay aloft until after 6pm.

Bronze C Lectures

The CFI’s running the Bronze C lectures again this year, from February to April. The aim is to get early solo pilots through the Bronze in time for the soaring season, but the lectures welcome pre-solo pilots who want to get ahead of the game, and experienced pilots who have forgotten what the game is.

There’s a poster in the clubhouse for you to put your name on. If you don’t come out to fly in the cold weather, email the CFI who will do it for you, at a push.
