Soaring Sunday! 24th March 2019

Did today mark a turning point in our fickle weather? After a decidedly slow start to the year today saw a flurry of activity on the field. Great to see a line of trailers on the field and private gliders at the launch point.
After much time fettling in the hangar numerous gliders, both club and private have fresh ARC’s and Annuals.
Unfortunately the tug is still having a minor tantrum but promises to be back in the air shortly after attention from our diligent maintainers.
The winch (and drivers) were kept busy today with 44 launches in total. All available club aircraft were utilised with added support from EZE.
Local soaring flights in excess of an hour were achieved in club and private gliders with the first solid shakedown tasks of the year being flown including 100 and 200 km tasks with durations of up to 3.5 hours.
A total in excess of 28 hours flown today!
Notably Dan Pike took a break from installation of our ‘smart’ electrical management system and took a flight in EZE (and enjoyed it). Rumour has it he’s catching the bug!
