Congratulations to PJ for taking his maiden flight in his Libelle today. PJ purchased his Libelle back in June 2019 and the day finally arrived on Saturday 7th September for it first flight out of Gowran Grange. The flying conditions were very good with a gentle NNW breeze. Soaring conditions over Naas were very good and PJ took advantage of easing conditions in the afternoon. Well done.
Looking back on 2023, as usual one of the highlights was the autumn safari to Kerry. Storm Agnes knocked out some of the flying days, but we still managed to get flying. Here’s a picture of the K18 standing by to be launched into the air by a car tow. But what’s that “ground equipment” next
