OK I know it’s not a very imaginative title but it is the best I could do. Record temperatures last Saturday and not a bad days gliding considering the stable air mass. The new airfield cars all working and functional – lets look after them. Funny to see the number of times people climbed into the wrong side of the left hand drive Polo. Many thanks to Ian Russell from Challock who came along and gave us the benefit of his BI skills. Ian flew the K6 (another type in his log book) at the end of the day and I would imagine was an interesting contrast to the LS 4 he owns. Once again thanks Ian and I hope to see you at WDP again. It’s good for CLK/WDP relations, and I encourage such interchange.
A parachute went AWOL apparently which if it isn’t found would mean all the good work in terms of launch rates and trial lessons on Saturday would be a wasted effort, financially speaking.
I did a check flight with Ken and he passed! Brilliant, well done Ken. He then went on to fly a K13 solo and I look forwarding to consolidating our new found relationship in future weeks.
We have a much more autumnal period of weather with us now so who knows when we will get some more glorious soaring conditions. Let’s make sure we are all ready for next spring, annual checks performed over the winter and currency standards maintained.
