Tony McDermott Silver Duration

Share This Post

Congratulations to Tony McDermott who completed his 5 hour Silver Duration. Excellent achievement. Tony made an attempt at the 5 hour duration while at the Ulster Gliding Club a while back but was unfortunate to run out of lift with only 10 minutes to go. Obviously the experience stood to Tony as he earned his Silver Duration at Dublin Gliding Club on Saturday 11th May. Well Done!!
