Another weekend of contrasts except this time Saturday was the good day. We had many members turn up to fly and the two 2-seaters were fully utilised. We flew almost up to last light, with an aerobatics demonstration done as late as possible to avoid the turbulence of the thermals. Dave Pickles flew 332km, according to the OLC evaluation of his flight. David Stuart, a student from Newcastle, came out for the whole weekend and joined up as a club member.
On Sunday, several private owners came out to the airfield, washed their plane and put it back in the hangar. It was a good day for training flights, with Michael Laurent having his first flight in the Junior. He’s under 18 and doesn’t even have a driving licence yet, so you can’t ask him to shout you a beer in celebration.
