Tue 11th August

Douggie Mk 1 and Dave P both wanted some accustomisation flights in the long tipped DG in preparation for their Bronze flying tests with Tim tomorrow. Negligible wind and half decent thermals locally meant launch failure practise and spinning could be done (separately!). I think all enjoyed and learnt a bit and there should be no excuses for failure with Tim tomorrow. Good luck guys. Meanwhile Trevor and Steve went to Alton Towers in 970 apparently with a low point of -100ft QFE. Ken had some extended flights locally in MY. Thanks to Dave H and ex-cadets Seb and Matt for helping at the launch point.
