This superb classic higher design was built from a Slovenian basic kit. It is 2700mm span beautifully built, powered by Turnigy 42 size motor, running 5s. The fittings including struts, fuselage mounts, and undercarriage, were all scratch fabricated by Pete. It is an elegant slow flyer.

Guy was awarded his MAAA Silver wings by Phil; following initial training by several instructors.  His final in depth training was carried out by club MAAA Instructor Paul S.

Student pilot Allan progressed quickly to gain CCMAC Bronze Wings under tuition from Dennis.

He was also perhaps helped by some glider flying experience "many moons ago".

Welcome to new member and student pilot Glenn who is already making rapid and enthusiastic progress with instructor Dennis. Glenn wisely started with a Boomerang trainer, but is also rapidly building a squadron of aircraft!

The Club was sorry to say good bye to long standing and popular member Bob H who has decided to move to Queensland to be close to family.
