Saturday 16th May - Hooray! We are flying again!
Following Government advice that General Aviation can re-start, a group of us were delighted to get back in the air today. Strict social distancing was observed during rigging and briefing by CFI Simon Lucas, and in compliance with government advice, it was solo flying only. The honours for the first flight from AD in what must be the best part of two months fell to Rob Corbin in his and Simon Buckley's Shark. It was a splendid day to be in the air with some strong climbs to 5,000'. We are very grateful to Jonathan May for bringing his Tug over from Turweston to do the aertows.
The EGU newsletter is worth reading to see what’s happening in other countries as regards gliding (though some info is 4 weeks old).
