Weekend - July 14/15, 2018

What a weekend! Another great one!

Quiet at SP on Saturday as many of our members took in the Fun Fly with our friends at Shearwater. This was a great event with lots of flying, some oohs and ahhs with the FAST turbine planes (clocked at upwards of 297km/h), great food and even better company.... now only if the weatherman had provided just a little more heat!!! It is summer, right? ;)

There are a lot of videos on Facebook, for any of those who might be interested in looking. Here are some:

Sunday was great too. No wind and sunny. Very much a training day with a line-up for training. I do apologize to those who were not able to get as much training as we would have liked:
  • Steve (and Benjamin)
  • Shelley
  • Ron
  • Paul
  • Gaetan

A BIG CONGRATS to Ian for earning his wings through Rick's tutoring. Well done!!!

  • Paul has been to the field a few times and is really getting the hang of the landings. He was up with Marc R with his new plane for a maiden. I've recommended just another flight with the Apprentice and then a buddy box with his new plane - and then he should be good to go too with his wings!
  • Ron's sim time is really showing. More great landings and easy take-offs and lots of control during flight. Well done.\
  • Shelley is progressing really well and is learning the skill of pushing the plane around in the sky. Easy of the sticks and little corrections! Fantastic!
  • Gaetan is very experienced in the QUAD field and is flying his new DJI Mavic Pro... moving now to learn planes. Definitely more of a handful. He was up with Rick on a Fun Cub.

Currently, we "only" have the one trainer. But certainly it is mornings like today that emphasize that more training planes and more trainers willing to donate their time is so important to our club. Please let me know if you might be interested in supporting this aspect of our club.

I also grabbed a few Phantom shots of the fog hanging in the narrows. The MacDonald Bridge appeared to be "socked" in.
