Saturday 25 May

Phew, that was a busy day! First launch was at 10.30am and we were still launching after 7.00pm. A large number of gliders headed off cross country, mostly to Wales. Jack Helm, flying the K8, completed a successful first field landing somewhere near Nymspfield- well done. Patrice, a colleague of Etienne's, enjoyed his One Day Course with Chris Tooze in the DG500 and Debbie Thomas did a stalwart job of instructing in the K13. A visiting T21 had several trips up to a chilly 3,000'. Many thanks to Doug Gardner, Matt Pateman and a visitor called Tim for driving the winch.

Saturday May 4th

After a slow ish start a good day was had by all. Dan Hayday completed his BI checks - congratulations!
We had a busy grid by midday and despite some launching issues many enjoyed a good day with some off round Kidderminster and Brecon. Others enjoyed some good training flights including plenty of soaring.
Thanks to those who drove the winch and ran the launch point.

Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st April

First full weekend of good soaring weather. Lots of training flights in the sunshine and lots of cross-country flights entered on the National Ladder. The season has really started, though a bit later than usual.

Saturday 2nd March

The white stuff has descended on to the airfield so no flying today. There will be a talk this evening at 7.00 about navigation devices and software. Hope the roads are clear by then.

Saturday 24th Feb

A good day for February. Started out with variable amounts of cloud at just 700 feet which gradually opened up so that by the afternoon we had almost clear skies. Winching from runway 21 with 3 two seaters out and the K23 and K18 for solos. 61 flights in total all controlled from the new mobile "tower". Picture is from the K13 late downwind with Kim at the controls.

Juniors at Denbigh

From Ben: KNK has been having a great time in the wave at Denbigh! As always, UK Junior Gliding really appreciates the support of the club and is very grateful that KNK has been allowed to make the trip.

Sunday 22nd October

A beautiful October day that saw Paul Gentil celebrate 50 years of gliding.

Saturday 14-10-23

A busy day's flying in the autumn sunshine. We managed to dodge this shower, but a later one washed everyone out of the sky, including a visitor from Nympsfield.
