Instructor weekend

I had instructor duty this weekend, it was nice to get a break and get out in the cold after a week of 18 hours work days. Saturday was nice with nil wind and perfect conditions to have sled rides down for the students. They did well and got 3 flights each. One student flew hanggliders until 15 years ago, and then have done paragliding in the last years. He got his first flight on our Aeros Target training glider and made a very nice takeoff and landing.

Today it was strong tailwind and fog, so no flights were possible.

In the Pre-Worlds in Oz it’s been a windy day as well, with no flying today. Brett Hazlett won the first day yesterday, with Rohan and Kraig on second and third.
