Junior Gliding at The Mynd

Whilst the strong winds stopped play at Aston Down, the DG500 ventured northwest to the Long Mynd for the second weekend of the UKJG Winter Series. Around 100 young pilots attended the event and we managed to fly on both Saturday and Sunday in a sporty westerly breeze - the hill worked very well! A number of our own UWE students were part of the group of enthusiastic Juniors who enjoyed some ridge running as well as the fantastic social atmosphere that the Mynd never fails to deliver.

All in all a great weekend - many thanks to the club for letting us use the glider again.
