20th-21st March 2021 – Weekend Update

The return to flying has started!

With restrictions slowly being eased, we proceeded to dedicate this weekend and the next to getting our experienced team of instructors current, so they’re ready and rearing to bring the rest of the club up to scratch after a long time away from the airfield.

Saturday was all hands on deck to get instructors flown before the inevitable cold from the North pushed in, a task proved successful! Sunday on the other hand came with glorious thermals up to 3000″, with very happy members taking full advantage of the conditions and having hour long flights. This gave us a grand total of 28 winch launches and 8 instructors now current, a fantastic result for such limited operations.

A massive thank you goes to all members that turned up to help out around the airfield to ensure a smooth operation, its a prime demonstration of the commitment that goes on behind the scenes.
