Well, that was a very successful spring gliding week. Lots of flights flown, distance covered and experience gained. Among the highlights: Ian Tait soloing in R67, John Campbell having his longest flight in the Junior and our only visiting pilot - our old pal Andy Vidion - getting more than 16 hours over the week in his DG303. We can cope with more visitors in weeks like these!

4 days of flying out of the 5 (or 7 from 9 if you include the weekends), plus a new member in Simon Bachelor, who had his TM flight a week past Sunday and was back out for his first training slot on Saturday, keen as mustard and smiling all day long.

On Saturday, R1 got finished off in the workshop, signed off, rigged, tested and de-rigged into its trailer, ready for its visit to Sisteron with the Army boys.
