Great day!!

 Earlier in the week John & Terry (above) paired up in ZAV for a flight just short of 300k.

 Great to see Gerry & Steve (above) who flew in for a bit of gliding in the Twin Astir.

As you can see Ralph (above) with Eddie and (below) is in top form already and the season has only just begun!!

Jon (below) enjoyed a flight with Eddie in the Twin Astir.
Tim, Rolf, Terry & Andrew made the most of best day so far this season with cloud base of 9000 to 11,000 feet. Temperature at 1500hrs 37 degrees.

Delicious crunchy crackle!!

 Mike (above) with Eddie had a flight 'just as spectacular' as the previous glider flight he had 15 years ago.

 Alan (above) with his lovely wife and Eddie had a fantastic flight in the Twin Astir this morning.

Best present ever!

 Peter (above) had the 'best present ever' soaring with Eddie in the Twin Astir this afternoon.

 Alf (above) from Kalgoorlie is honing his gliding skills with Eddie.

Great to see Eddie (above) return to gliding after Ed first sent him solo in 1976. They were both a little younger then - but not as good looking!!
