Edgehill 14th Oct 2012

Tim & Phil from the West Midlands visited Shenington for some gliding lessons.

We were blessed with a gorgeous autumn day, light winds, great visibility and blue skies initially, but gradually getting cloudier as the day went on.  Perfect weather for Phil’s first flight.

First flight was John & Phil flying for 30 minutes in the Venture motor-glider, to introduce the controls.

Then Tim continued to make good progress with his training, practicing speed control and using the trim.

We then got the k21 out for a few flights.

Phil’s grin was from ear to ear!
