We were treated to another great ‘Flying Week’ at the Park this week fellow aviators 🙂 .
I think you’re right Mike, everyone was so busy making the most of the great flying weather, our beloved blog was left unattended too.
I flew everyday this week apart from Monday, and the soaring opportunities were plentiful.
As a relative newcomer to the sport, I took on board a very handy tip from Mike Thorne and pushed my own limits this week, by setting myself local soaring tasks. I used turn points at Longleat, Stourhead, and a Farm South East of the Park (clear of the circuit). I then tried to fly round this short local circuit quicker and quicker each time.
The Cross Country Pilots have the Ladder. Perhaps my fellow relative newcomers to the sport, could have our own local soaring, “Step Ladder” league table 🙂 . Good practice in readiness for our own future Cross Country endeavours.
I had a fantastic weeks flying. It is my Birthday today, and I even spent that at the Park flying with my fellow aviators, I can’t think of a better way I could have spent it.
As it is my Birthday today, I did of course bring a selection of cakes with me to the Park (picture below).
I think there are some sticky toffee cakes left. If they haven’t yet been devoured by a hungry aviator, they can be found in the caravan, any early birds at the Park tomorrow, feel free to help yourselves 🙂 .
