XC Activities:

  • Another good and busy XC week with 30 flights over 300km and a few over 600km.
  • A few pilots took advantage of the high convection (13’500ft) to fly the convergence over the New England plateau, good speeds of 135Km/h over 500km were achieved.
  • Andy and Alan did coaching flights in the Duo Discus and ASG 29.


  • No trainees this week, Jessica Lee and Audrey Lee have left to go back to Hong Kong with lots of new skills and are super keen to come back & visit us.

Other Visitors:

  • We have Milan Petkovic who is a returning visitor and Cathay Pacific pilot, and Brian Thomas also a Cathay Pacific pilot. Both are friends with our dear Casey Lewis and are here to have a friendly, social little tootle around the skies.
  • Graham Martin is here to help out with the towing this week as is our funny resident Dr, Al Giles. Our club couldn’t operate without our tuggies and we value and appreciate all that they do to keep our pilots in the air.
  • Frances Knowles has left after a week having fun soaring our skies. Frances had a great time is now off to Nelson’s Bay to enjoy the sun & sea before heading back to chilly UK.

Weekend Forecast:

  • This weekends forecast is for very warm conditions but with the chance of a thunderstorm so come out to Keepit and you should be able to enjoy some great flying.
