Wednesday 30th December at the Park. “Last flying day of 2020 at the Park” 😎.

Good evening fellow aviators.

It was a very pleasant days flying from the Park today 🙂.

It was a crisp winters day, the upper wind was approx. WSW at a gentle 5kts. There were no soaring opportunities due to the stable air mass, as is to be expected this time of year.

Only a small band of hardy Pilots at the Park today but the enthusiasm to fly continued all day, with launching only pausing briefly for cable retrieves.

Mike J had a productive day instructing, and the maintenance team continued to make excellent progress with their winter maintenance programme 🙂 👍🏻.

For most Pilots, today was an opportunity to get some Launch and Circuit practice in. But John H, inspired by this being our last flying day of the year, decided to treat us all to some aerobatics. I was lucky enough to be invited to take the rear seat of the Puch for a ringside view of Johns aerobatic masterclass 🙂.

A total of 17 Glider flights and 4 Touring Motor Glider flights today. Another very pleasant days flying from the Park dear aviators 😎.

I took a few pictures from the day to share with you all, hope you enjoy them.

Kind regards.


Over we go! 🙂.

Heading back to base.
Well, the ginger bread men on Johns hat certainly appear to have enjoyed the flight 😉

  1. Also thanks to the team that cleaned & helped de-rig GAM before I towed it back to Tim Dews for its annual service & ARC renewal, sadly the trailer wasn’t so clean when we arrived!
