With the sun burning a hole in the ground in Inverness and in Findochty we were greeted on arrival with Eastertons little micro climate of drizzle and low cloud! Thankfully this cleared around 2pm and we managed to get HYJ and JMY launched.

Cloudbase crept up to about 2000ft, a bit lower in places, with lots of blue holes and scratchy broken thermals to keep things interesting.

Our trial lesson who came through from Aberdeen managed to get airborne into some of the best conditions of the day and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Mike Laity and Mark Norton each had a flight in JMY with John Campbell polishing up on some back seat flying with John Thomson in HYJ.

Thanks to Ian Lane and John Bisset for tugging.
