Davidstow Flying


Recommended Posts

Big shout out to Tony and the Davidstow club for a couple of days taking advantage of the break in the weather before the storm arrives.

smooth air today and managed 4 flights before I lost the feeling in my feet :)

i suspect the next days will be maintaining only but great full for a winter fligh.

Merry Christmas to all fellow flyers and those in the background acting as support allowing us the privilege of our hobby.

North Cornwall across Bodmin moor.

Stunning and lucky to get the weather window. 

Last year managed a equally stunning flight up the Tamar river bordering Devon and Cornwall from Saltash to Gunnerslake.

seeing how the members map is growing would be good to make a local flying to member locations so we don't pressure any individual locations.

I'd be up for a trip over from Germany again for a Airborne Grand Tour :)

I'm a mature and still new pilot with under 100 flights but having done the APPI and advanced training this year I'm ok with going out and flying solo.

I think in this sport we never stop learning and my advice is to find a local club or contact and fly in company.

The member map here is growing so opertunities to meet and fly are also increasing. 

Sometimes waiting isn't frustrating but from experience I can say it's definitely better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than the other way around :)

That said silk glove liners make a huge difference as does thermals a flight suit and warm socks, crisp air gives good lift and when the stars align go for it.
