It was a nice morning at Bulwer students Kaisu and Robert got some flights and toplandings in. Some experienced pilots flew for hours. The wind picked up and we did quite a bit of parawaiting. Kaisu and Robert got one more flight each and had to do quite a lot of bigears to come down as there a big thundercloud was building towards the North.
Yesterday our students had nice flights and top landings at Bulwer. Flying ended early with thunderstorms building up. Suddenly there was a lot of lift, which meant it was time to pull in big ears and go and land. An epic storm came past a bit later with swirling cloud, strong wind, and a lot of lightning. Today there is 100% high cloud cover with very calm conditions and a light East wind. Wednesday and Thursday looks like it will be good at Bulwer, maybe some storms in the afternoon.
It was a perfect day for running around on the slopes learning to pull up a glider. New students Robert and Kaiso from Norway and Finland logged two flights each. The morning started off with light rain. It cleared up quite early and we had a good training day.
Student Roger Luke yesterday logged three nice flights before the wind got a bit strong and Cumulus clouds started to over develop. On Sunday there was also good flying with thunderstorms in the afternoon. Hans did some good tandems and Roger got a great thermalling flight. Today is hot and Northwest to West wind.
