Many thanks to all the pilots who came to Saturday's XC Workshop in Ingleton. Prize for the the longest journey goes to Ian from Snowdonia. Top effort mate!
It was great to see lots off pilots who are completely new to cross country flying and are keen to get started. We also had some seriously experienced XC pilots at the workshop who were very satisfied with what they got out of the day. The 2011 XC League Champion, Mike Cavanagh even put in an appearance; to claim the pint I owed him!
We are on the cusp of the new season so now we should all be focusing on getting out flying. Even if we are not covering the kilometres, any canopy time is vital training at this time of year.
This Sunday's meteorology lecture for the pilot exam will be the last ground-based day until the Autumn, but I'll be out on the hill working with pilots and enjoying myself. The April XC coaching and flying day is nearly full but there are a few places available in May. July's Pilot Development Week in Annecy is filling fast. I hope you can join us.
