25th 26th July

Another great weekend of training.


Saturday stronger SE winds, so we opted for ground handling and was this very fruitful. Everyone who attended learnt, that less is more. In strong winds little amount of input is very effective.


Well done to Lene on her first ground handling session and almost flying with Tom.


Sunday a early start to Piketberg, after a briefing the first guys we off, some student on their first flights with us, and other a new site.


With light thermic cycles coming up making takeoff easy, some doing forward while others preferred the reverse launch.


We had a great turn out of students, at different levels but all enjoying their flights, doing Big Ears, speed bar, 360’s, thermaling with other pilots, wow what a day.


Most students getting in 6 flights some short and some long, Lots of lessons learnt, excitement and nerves.


Well done to all, another great day with spectacular views, enjoying Mother nature.
