Dan Smith Aerobatic Trophy

dansmithThe Dan Smith Aerobatic Trophy takes place at LGC on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd April. The organisers have asked for Cadet help over the weekend to help launch and retrieve the gliders involved in the competition.

It should be a good weekend and you will be able to see for yourselves what a K21 is really capable of!

Liam and Eddie are collating names of you that are able to help so please let them know if you want to come along.
