Helping a Friend

Matt Hall approached us last week with an unusual request: the Discovery Channel is featuring him in a series and could they film him flying his Giles at Warkworth?  Matt had all the paperwork from CASA sorted out but he still needed a venue.

The filming took 2 days with many flights and interviews.  They have already filmed the gliding segment of the show in New Zealand, so they didn’t need to shoot any of our gliders.  The programme will go to air later this year - probably around October.  We can’t show you the photos we took until after it has been shown, so here’s a few photos from Matt’s practice session last year.
