Members Development Week proves a great success

Tuesday, 2 April, 2019

Members Development Week (25th – 29th March) proves a great success.

With enthusiasm from the course members, commitment from instructors together with favourable weather conditions for all 5 days, significant progress was made by members and many personal objectives achieved.

With participants meeting at 0800 hours each day, flying to commence shortly after 0900 hours and continued throughout the day with only a short lunch break.

On most days 5 gliders were available supported by 5 instructors.

Over the 5 days, there were a total of 78 winch launches, 56 aerotows and additional cross country sorties utilizing a motor glider.

Achievements during the week are summarized below:

  1. Solo aerotow, incl conversion to Junior.
  2. 3 monthly clearance for aerotow
  3. Bronze GST
  4. Navigation & field landings - Cross Country Endorsement
