Towards the end of a very hot and long Easter course the Grasshopper came out to start flying operations again after the layoff whilst efforts have gone into the Sedbergh recover. Rich Manara had his first flights on type with emotions ranging from initially quite nervous to being completely speechless and then with a massive grin on his face couldn’t stop talking about it!!

Then the moment we have all been waiting for as the shape of the Swallow appeared in circuit. Not to pass up an opportunity I took a tow behind the Rotax Falke as it departed for Keevil, it is a delight to fly and thermalled very nicely. I’m sure everyone will enjoy converting over the next few months.
