Kerry Safari 2023 – Looking Ahead

Share This Post

This year’s annual club safari to Kerry is scheduled for the fortnight from 23rd September to 8th October.  Regulars won’t need to be reminded about it, but anyone wanting to sample this unique gliding experience should plan to clear a few days (or the full fortnight) to attend. The safari is intended for solo pilots, with the two-seater K13 being used mainly to give training and check flights on car-launching and ridge soaring. However, all are welcome to come along if only to observe – and to help with the running of the operation.

Any intending first-timers are advised to get further info about the safari beforehand. Sea, scenery and soaring make for a wonderful combination!
