Teenage Saturday August 10th

Sat, 08/10/2019 - 22:06

We have encouraged our small number of teenaged pilots to come and fly on Red Saturdays, in the expectation that they will form friendships with each other. Although wet and windy today Elliot, Holly, Harrison and our new cadet Finn enjoyed a presentation from Geoff and then spent several hours in a simulator. As a bonus Liz and Stuart Hayes, Finns parents, joined the club as well.

Record at Saltby

The only record achieved during the Inter-Uni Competition at Saltby was the Temperature. The picture shows the only sensible activity - pool provided by Matt Page.

But seriously, although strong winds and not easy thermals didn't facilitate much X-country, a thoroughly useful and enjoyable time was had by our UWE members and yours truly. Several sat and passed their Bronze papers, organised and marked by Matt.

We are all grateful to Cotswold GC for allowing us to take the DG500.
