Each of the eleven students on the course, as well as the members of staff, battled the searing heat inside the cockpits as well as light and changable winds. The result : 11 completed Scholarships and 10 solos with 2 days remaining. Well done!

With the new patio area nearly complete and a new BBQ up and running, an early End of Couse BBQ was a fantastic way to end saturday night. Thanks to Sarah, Jessica and Nick for organising.

With the cadets disappearing on Sunday morning, the attention turned to the junior staff who had worked so hard in the heat to keep the operation running.
