Welcome to Patrick Moran, Rhys Williams, Sebastian Archer and Michael Walker. Yes another week of intensive training and development begins.

Patrick and Rhys are on their 2nd week this season and hope to solo this week. Sebastian was nearly solo 5 years ago and so is hoping to make some good progress this week and Michael ,an ATPL from Hong Kong) was solo several years ago and is hoping to get back into the saddle this week.

Great to see both tractors out today giving the grass a trim. many thanks to those involved.

The soaring forecast is a bit mixed this week, Tues day not looking brilliant but still flyable.

The evening talk was on launch failures ---in readiness for tomorrow.
