Congratulations to Nik Valiris and John Morgan for completing their first UK cross country flights today from Combe Gibbet.

Nik and John are ex students of Cloudbase and have been away on our overseas trips to Slovenia and Lanzarote where they have been practicing their thermalling technique. Well all the hard work paid off today, it was great to see you both leaving the hill after I had set the goal to Andover and competently flying down wind and selecting a suitable field to land in, you have made your CFI very proud. Official distances have not been verified but are around the 15-20km mark.

All I need to do now is re sign write the Cloudbase tuck to read Cloudbase Groupie retrieve Taxi.

Well done again.
