Ruari, the youngest of the Tait dynasty (at the moment!) sent off solo today, on his 14th birthday, by proud dad and club chairman Robert. An ace flight, a sniff of soaring and a greased landing. Well done Ru !! 3 generations of Tait pilots on hand with grandparents Jim and Ruth, mum and dad Teresa and Robert and Ruari following in the solo footsteps of his big brothers Ian and Dougie.

This makes Ruari the first in Scotland to go solo at 14
