Wednesday 17th July. Great local soaring day ๐Ÿ™‚.

Good evening dear aviators. RASP predicted some excellent local soaring at the Park today and Mother Nature delivered.

A usefully high cloud base of around 3500ft above the Park, gave good opportunities to travel between thermal sources through the day.

Carefully following the energy lines as they developed throughout the day, regularly resulted in sustained lift of between 1 & 4 knots up in level flight.

Greg successfully completed his first 2 hour duration flight, clocking up a very respectable 2:41. He was duly rewarded with a high five from Chris ย ๐Ÿ™‚. Well done Greg ๐Ÿ‘.

17 flights in total at the Park today. 14 Glider Flights and 3 Motor Glider Flights.

All in all, another very pleasant and productive day at the Park. Plentiful local soaring opportunities, and plentiful training opportunities.

P.S. I was treated today to the tantalising sight of a mysterious crop circle in a field over toward the A303 Services, South East of the Park. I didn’t mange to take a picture this time round, but take a look next ย time your flying over that way. Did we have aviators visiting from even further afield than we imagined during last weeks flying week ๐Ÿ›ธ ๐Ÿ‘ฝ . The truth is out there dear aviators ๐Ÿ˜‰.

kind regards.
