Flying Report Sunday 10th February. “Fortune favoured the brave”.

Today resulted in some great flying.

It wasn’t a promising start to the day from a weather perspective. It was raining in the early part of the morning, and bitterly cold, with a windchill that would have given a polar bear “paws” for thought, 🙂 .

However, the spirits of the skeleton crew of hardy aviators was not dampened. The weather improved as the morning rolled on and we took to the skies. Rain paused play briefly, conveniently enough it was at lunch time, and flying resumed again shortly after.

We managed 7 Aero Tow flights throughout the day. Cloud Street formations developed around the Park in the afternoon, resulting in 2 of todays flights having a thermal gain of 500 ft each after releasing from the tug.

I uploaded some pictures of the day to share with you all, please see below.

Kind regards.

Damien.

Todays wind chill was bitterly cold, but nothing could dampen the enthusiasm of the team to get flying.

No caravan comfort for this hardy band of aviation enthusiasts, just a landy and a gator.

Some stunning views were enjoyed of the skies and countryside around the Park.

As the afternoon rolled on we were treated to some Cloud Street formations, resulting in some great flying for those lucky enough to be in the sky at the right times.

The newly installed S80 indicated some respectable climb rates beneath the Cloud Streets.
