Chairman’s Challenge – Saturday, 30 September 2018
The event was a great success and very well supported. Early leader is Bob who amassed a very creditable cumulative time with some 8 flights from his allotted fuel allowance. The Chairman managed a couple of flights and is holding himself back for the Part 2 of the event, date to be confirmed. This will allow those who were unable to get along on Saturday to lay down their challenges.

Flying was a little challenging with some aircraft in the windy
conditions, but we had planes from six pilots flying.
Otherwise the weather was good and there were definitely some
A mix of IC and electric power as usual and the chairman turning one IC
into a glider mid flight 🙂
A mosquito made from fibreboard in six days and for me the highlight was
a Spitfire bring followed, and filmed from a following quad which will
be on the website at some point. This was new to the event and to both
pilots, but I sense it will not be the last time and can only get better
as pilots get ‘in synch’ better.
That’s it from me for now, apart from thanking all those that turned up,
and especially Alan for a great BBQ, and anyone that helped out in any
of the many ways.
A full report with pics will appear on the website
Don’t forget next weekend the chairman’s challenge cup, and the drone
Have fun and fly safe
