Tuesday 20th August. “Good soaring day 🙂”.

Good evening fellow aviators.

A good forecast preceded a good days soaring from the Park  today.

A steady 10 -15 kt WNW wind was present throughout the day, but glorious sunshine persisted and the temperatures remained warm and comfortable all day.

The Cross Country Pilots were out in force, tackling a variety of tasks, and travelling as far and wide as Bridgnorth and Milton Keynes. Alastair encountered one particular thermal that averaged 11.5kts up during a 1000ft climb!

Mike J, was kept busy locally with training duties, and even tried his hand at a bit of inflight photography. Please see picture below dear aviators 😂🙂!Good first attempt Mike 😂🙂. 

The launch point took a momentary step back in time at one point this afternoon, with a trio of K6’s on line ready to launch 🙂.

32 Glider flights in total today. Plus a welcome visit from a Mendip motor glider.

Tomorrows forecast looks promising again fellow aviators 🙂👍.

Kind regards.

Damien.
