Annual General Meeting

Flying 29 & 30 March 2015

The weather on Saturday didn’t work out to be as good as hoped due to the high level of cloud cover. Despite the cloud cover, there were some thermals around. Darren and Derek Spencer got to 3000’ for a 36 minute soaring flight. There were some other shorter soaring flights as well. It was quite evident though, that if there hadn’t been any cloud cover, the thermals would have been very good.

The weather on Sunday was better than Saturday with less cloud cover and more heating from the sun. Even the Cherokee could stay up and got a 40 minute flight. Leigh Stokes got height of the day, topping out at 6000’.

Congratulations to Myron Hall who went SOLO on Sunday. Well done!

Thanks to everyone who helped out with running operations over the weekend.

March Long Weekend Flying

The weather for the long weekend was just awesome with good flying all three days. There was significant cloud development Monday so it wasn’t going particularly high (5700’) but there were reports of thermals in excess of 10 knots. Dennis Medlow reported average thermal strengths of 6 Knots with instantaneous thermal strength off the top end of the scale. Simply awesome! However, there were significant areas of sink.

We would like to thank everyone for their help with running the AEF Day on Saturday. We had a great turnout and the flying was good. Everyone got a go and had some fun. Someone that needs highlighting is Darren Alcoe, who put on a spectacular dinner Saturday night with a home made Spaghetti Bolognese, herb bread and cheesecake for dessert. Just AWESOME! He then followed that up with another delicious dinner on Sunday night. Fantastic.
