Looks like Spring has arrived?

well it was a long time coming, but it looks as if Spring has arrived. Two fantastic weeks of weather in early May kept our instructors busier flying, rather than doing the rounds picking the best weather forecast to go by! That said, even the 'best' weather forecast gets it wrong sometimes....thats where our well-honed experience comes in ;-)

Lots of students (old and new) got the hint that summer was here with frantic phone calls and migration North (for the southern guys) following shortly afterwards. So a busy time for all, with two first solo flights and a flying test completed. For those of you that have done some lessons and are thinking of coming back and finishing, get back at it. No excuses of 'we are skint cos of the credit crunch!' Payment can be made in a variety of ways, Euro, Sterling, Visa, Mastercard, Tesco vouchers, Chickens or a even downpayment on the Audi at the Prentice garage at the end of Tarsan Lane. Seriously though, if you have dropped out of the course for whatever reason, get back at it. Sitting on top of a layer of cloud at 4000ft in an open cockpit Microlight is absolutely priceless...the credit crunch wont matter then. 

A powered parachute has made an appearance at the club. Raymond ONeill has almost completed his hours required for his license, so that will be a first for the school when completed. For those of you that dont know what a powered parachute is, have a look here. They are great fun...but are very weather dependent. Excellent for a nice summers evening, but definitely no crosswind takeoffs.

lots and lots of other things going on, or about to happen...but hey, we have to save it for another post or I will have nothing else to write about. Last thing...I now have an examiner rating so you can do the whole kaboodle under one roof lessons, ground exams & flying test.Just something to make all our lives a bit easier when it comes to doing your test.

Cheers, Victor
