How many winches were needed to launch this Ka-8?

Looks like this from the lower end of the launch 🙂

Our freshly reworked winch is on the left and used the first drum of cable to launch several gliders to check it out.
The centre winch still had a few things to be sorted so didn’t eventually supply a launch.
The right hand is the loaned Skylaunch, which will be retained for a hopefully short time to check out the other two.
Particular thanks to the people who have worked long and hard on them for the rest of us to use. 🙂
Overall a good turnout for the first operational day of the new year. Also congratulations to Aliaksei Pilko on his first solo!
