The new Falke is now ready to fly.

Notes for those with an SMLG have been prepared by Alan Smith, outlining the differences between this aircraft and the other Falke, which is still available. Check with Alan, Dave Watt, Mike Pettican or OJ before flying this aircraft.

Currently G-CFMW costs £54 an hour to hire.

Sat 6th / Sunday 7th

Congratulations to Rogier (Rocky) Westerhaus for passing his Bronze Exam with a very high score, AND then his Bronze GFT an hour later, to complete his Bronze! Dave Burrett also re-soloed after a layoff. Alan Smith has now converted his NPPL to include SSEA, so we expect some trips in the Robin!

Richard Chapman is now all sorted for instructing on the Winch, and Tony Cleworth flew his first trial flight as a BI.

John Marriott also sent someone on a first solo (some bloke with a beard)! If this was you, or you know who it was, drop me a line. Well done none the less!

A great weekend, loads of flying, lots achieved.

The OUGC training week starts tomorrow, we will be Winching all week this week, please feel free to come along and fly. Any instructors or Winch drivers would be particularly welcome!
