John H. was first up to stress FUY and de-stress himself with an aerobatic air test. Duly passed, it was returned to the hangar for John to finish off a few extras before getting it back into service. Many thanks for all the work, John.
The RASP wind was pretty accurate, 270/10~15 kts, which gave the K21 a first launch of 1600′, above the broken cloudbase. I was flying it with Mervyn B. and on his second he got us to 1800′, or rather Alec driving the winch did, with light cloud still around 1600′. Andy took over winching in the afternoon, having already mowed the grass. Many thanks to both of them for good high launches all day.
Adam took over the K21 to fly Mark S., our latest full member, following his trial flight and subsequent training on his “30 day ticket”. Keep up the good progress Mark!
Chrissy had the longest flight, thermalling to around 2100′ cloudbase in the early afternoon. At times, the cloud built up and threatened rain but it didn’t happen ( until I was well on my way home), so we had another useful autumn weekday of flying.
Many thanks to all for helping, even if not themselvs flying, Phil G.
