My Weekend

Now our aeroplane is fixed we are gradually getting back into our old routine. That is to say, 50% of our weekends during the summer we fly up to a gliding site in the Midlands and go gliding. We are both very rusty so have got a lot of ground to make up. Still we did get our glider out of it's box and Paul flew it both days. My medical has expired :-( so I can't fly solo until I get that sorted hopefully in another couple of weeks. Instead I flew as navigator in the back of a two seat glider for a cross country exercise. This is a photo I took of Paul (not doing as well as us) from the back of the two seater. The gliding airfield is visible in the top of the picture just right of centre. I although I enjoy navigating and there is a lot to learn flying with someone else it does tend to cause me to get travel sick. I get travel sick map reading in a car! Luckily it didn't get messy but I was aware of the possibility all the way around but wasn't going to let on. Luckily, I'm not affected by it when I'm do.uing the flying but then I don't get the chance to take photos.

Wow, that's cool. I can't get over the fact you guys have an aeroplane. Looks like it would be an amazing experience.

Yes, it is...provided, they is, you don't mind the bills! :-)

I've always thought gliding would be great-very silent, without engines, like being a bird.

It is. One of the great things about it is you can share a thermal with a buzzard. They always out do you though.

What beautiful scenery.

I was once married to one of those: a pilot. We had a WW11 open cockpit. PT22 Ryan. Seemed like all we did was clean that thing. And...I didn't even like flying but was part of the marriage it seems.
