Saturday 19th June

Despite solid overcast at 1,600' and an irritating cross-wind, we managed a full day's flying. Visitors Lyndsey and Alex enjoyed their introduction to gliding on the One Day Course. Cadets Jack and Brandon continued to progress well, both of them getting to grips the winch launch. Meanwhile, Martin Hayward and Tom J were working on their Friends & Family ratings with Simon Lucas and Mike Weston respectively. Instructors John Huband and Tony Parker flew an enthusiastic group of UWE students. Many thanks to Martin Hayward and Alistair Lomax for driving the winch.
