Decent day as promised – ridge working from zero to 700 ft, plus weak thermal and a bit of wave in the morning, which seemed to disappear in a sulk after a very brief shower around noon. I had my first go in the Junior – seems nice enough despite the total(!) lack of any total energy compensation on the vario – either I couldn’t locate the magic switch that enables it, or else it just plain doesn’t work … answers on a postcard …
No pre-solo students, but Rob kept himself busy with a trial lesson plus a few checks, with follow-up rides in the Junior or K23. Holly tried the K21 out from the back seat and acquitted herself well.
Altogether a fine start to the year, and here’s to another one tomorrow. My top tip – plenty of warm and wind-proof clothing – remember there’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate attire!
Happy New Year!
