Saturday we can call the official opening of the flying at Tower Hill for the season. Flyable from 8.30 in the morning up to sunset. Tower dished out her usual magic and through the day there were varying conditions to suit any pilot choice. Pilots flew all day long, top landing for refreshments or a break and taking to the air once more. Me thinks the Swedes did the trick and brought good weather with them. A truly glorious flying day it was that left me humming the words ‘ what a feeling’ .
Although he has had many hours of ground training and tandem flights in the last few years, he joined the course like any other student and progressed from the ground to skimming flights and then solos very smoothly. As I upload this post he has already completed 22 top to bottoms
Although it played havoc for pg pilots as well as farmers who were about to harvest the rice paddy all of us who witnessed it will have to agree that it was breathtakingly beautiful and a treat for the senses
