First day of flying at Sutton Bank today with many hours flown.
With cumulus in abundance and a 10kt NNE wind we aerotowed off 02. Cloud base was a reasonable 3500ft and there was good lift available
Rod gave Nigel a site check in EUF and had just short of the hour. Chris encountered strong sink and had to take a relight after 15 mins , his second flight lasting well in excess of an hour.
Carol and I had over two hours and explored good lift over Thirsk and the surrounding areas. Nigel then took the Vega for a couple of flights very much enjoying his first aero tows in a single seater.
A bit later in the afternoon Graham arrived and had a couple of flights with Rod and was introduced to aero towing and the delights of flying here at SB. During the flight Chris and I flew alongside them and took a few photos….. more later.
At the end of the day Rod found a nice spot to park the Puchacz!
Seems this is the first glider to use the new hanger!
So a very good day at Sutton Bank and today looks like more of the same.
