Wednesday 12th December

Another modest turnout where check flights were the order of the day.

With Colin still under the weather I made good use of a day off and persuaded Chris Keating, Rob Jarvis and Rod Harris to fly their annual checks with me.

After much bung pulling, spinning and general out of positioning all three passed their annual and P1 mutual checks with ease so well done to them :-)

Paul Bryant also demonstated some very capable spin recoveries so is now “Off Checks” as well.

With only a light SE wind launches to 1800 ft were the norm but with zero lift the 3 longest flights only acheived 10 minutes. All in all we only managed to log 25 flights but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
