Isaac solos in Llanbedr

Well done to Isaac, who did his first solo off a mile long tarmac runway at Llanbedr! Almost certainly a first first solo for Llanbedr.

Silver – All in one

Congratulations to Laurence Allen on completing his Silver on Sunday 12th August. The flight was in HCV. The trace below shows the route of the flight and the second diagram the height profile of the flight.

The flight declaration was LBZ – ENS – WOB -DUN, 124km. This flight also qualifies for the 100km Diploma parts 1 and 2 by completing it at a handicapped speed of 68 kph.

This shows the climbs made by Laurence. Having completed the silver distance during the declared flight, he then went down, deliberately, to mark a low point of 1900′ before climbing North of Milton Keynes to 6350′ easily giving him Silver Height. Then landing 5 hours and 10 minutes after take-off gave him the final element, Silver Duration.

As a bonus the flight also qualifies for the BGA 100km diploma. Great flight on a great day.
