Over 220 launches and 70 cadets flown.

The staff and cadets which had stayed overnight or arrived early, starting at 4am to get the flying started at dawn – 5am!!! During the week the MET forcast for the day was poor, but in the end only a few small showers early in the day stopped us for an hour or so. It took 20 launches in the last hour before sunset to ensure that we had flown every cadet. A good effort from everyone.
