Just as we were beginning to take full advantage of a return to flying and the advantage of our tarmac runways and its time to stop flying again for the latest lockdown.
Nevertheless we welcomed visitors during December including a rare bird, ASK14 G-CKFS flown for its first time in the new ownership of Graham Stanford.
The latest information from the BGA and CAA is available here.

Back in the air again!
It was fantastic to start flying again today, two gliders enjoying a couple of hours soaring in mixed wave and thermal.
In line with government guidelines and legislation, the group has temporarily suspended operations. Our small soaring group is ideally suited to resume flying when the time comes but in the mean time more guidance on the impact of Covid-19 on gliding is available here.
