Saturday 22nd August at the Park. A band of like minded aviators, “converged” on some terrific local soaring 😎.

Good evening fellow aviators.

Todays forecast really didn’t promise too much at all for the days flying. From early on in the day however extended thermic flights were enjoyed, and by the afternoon a terrific convergence had developed above the Park that resulted in some excellent local soaring, with wings level climbs of up to 6kts being experienced 🙂!

Locally, Cloud Base was approx. 3,300ft QFE, with a brisk 20kt 240 degree upper wind.

Thermal activity wasn’t suitable for Cross Country Tasks from the Park today, but was excellent for Local Soaring.

Mike J and Andy F, had a productive day instructing, and John H was on hand to take care of all of our aero tow needs in the brisk cross wind conditions.

A very pleasant and productive days flying from the Park dear aviators 🙂.

I took a few pictures from the day to share with you all. Hope you enjoy them.

Kind regards.

Damien.
