Flying Saturday 21 April 2018

Saturday looked lovely but despite a promising forecasts of XC-able conditions, it turned out to be disappointing. There was a window of a couple of hours of somewhat soarable weather but nobody got terribly high. We also had several cable breaks which didn't help. But on the bright side, several trainees (Adrian, James and Josephine) got some quality circuit time, and a new trainee (Kieran) got flight of the day in the Janus with Leigh (46mins).

In the evening, the first Stonefield Bonfire of the season went off with a bang, as did a fine spag bog dinner. (thanks Darren!)

X-Country April 2018

Congratulations to Leigh Stokes who did 353 km in his ASW20 on Sunday. There is a Club Goal of completing a 300km XC flight in EVERY month of the year. April has now been ticked off thanks to Leigh. Even though May has already been done we should still be going out XC and doing Silver C distances, the Stonefield Shortcourse or Gold Distances whenever possible. June is the next 300 month to conquer, so be prepared to step up to the challenge!

Flying at Easter 2018

Neither Saturday nor Sunday were the soaring days we were hoping for. On Saturday the forecast looked really promising, so Teal was all set to have another crack at her Silver distance (50kms) plus maybe even the 5 hour duration if things went to plan. Unfortunately they did not. There was not one thermal on Saturday. Flight of the Day was 18mins. And Sunday's weather was even worse.

Despite the uncooperative weather there was fun to be had, with an AEF getting her first glider flights, trainees getting some training and various other folk getting a bit of airtime.

A Rans S6 from Truro Flats dropped in for Sunday breakfast. The pilot was cheerfully persuaded by Nicola to take her for a joyride.
