flying in T-shirt and shorts

Wales was great but really hard work. We achieved a lot despite the weather with a total of over 25 teachable days in July and August but I can't hide my delight and relief in being back home in Spain. Don't get me wrong I do love the UK but blue skies, bucketfuls of daylight, reliable flying in t-shirt and shorts just rocks.

18th September 2008

We have already flown every day since we got back and next week does not look so different. We have new Cp pilots loving the thermalling experience, Richard, just out with 3 hrs has more than tripled his hours over six days flying, two hours soaring in the evening at Vejer, another six hours in total thermalling everywhere from Lijar to Montellano. Rob who was out on his second trip finally nailed thermalling and made his first Xc from Algo to Rhonda la Vieja. Brendan, Simon and Shona all flew brilliantly and had some great small xc’s and were unlucky not to get to Ronda with Nigel, Gaston and myself, following a great days flying.

September is all full as is October so we have had to put on an extra week at the end to cope with demand. We were mostly booked up months ago but what with the poor weather in the Uk over the last month we have had a lot of last min calls from frustrated Uk Pilots…so check out our calendar for dates in end of Ocotber and November.
