A successful day of flying

Thanks go to everyone who was able to help out today (Richard, Pat, Paul, Tony, Agnes, Ian, Eddie, Dick, Chris, Jacquie). The group from Ormiston Maritime Academy, Grimsby included three girls who first flew during High Flying Girls week, seven boys who had never flown before, and two teachers – one of whom had soloed with the ATC over 30 years ago! The weather was kind – although not generous with thermals – and the entire group got to fly. Some were convinced they might never get the chance again so we may have given them a once-in-a-lifetime experience, others are hoping to find a way to get down to the club more regularly.
Agnes and Jacquie were busy with the cameras and I’m looking forward to seeing the pictures – we may even have accidentally caught sight of teenagers smiling 🙂
