Story

I began flying when I was 15 with the ambition of becoming a commercial pilot. However, during my third year of flying I took the opportunity to fly aerobatics on a course at Lasham Gliding Society. From several training flights over the two day course, I managed to successfully perform a basic aerobatics sequence, allowing me to claim my basic aerobatics badge. For me, aerobatics is great fun as it requires both skill and discipline while at the same time being completely thrilling. I have most recently gained my sports evaluation allowing me to compete at sports level in the national aerobatics competition at Saltby Gliding Club this year.

My longer term aim is to be part of the UK British Gliding Aerobatics Team and compete internationally next year in Czech Republic. After being invited to train with the British Gliding Aerobatics Team I'm on the way to this goal. However, to reach this target I am going to need support, as without I will not be able to complete enough training to be able to compete. train hard enough and develop my aerobatics skills.

    Happy New Year! I have recently visited Lasham Gliding Society where I had a good time with the British Gliding Aerobatics Team. Even though there was only one flying day out of the four I was there, I had a good time with the team and flew on the Friday. The team also managed to make some headway with organisation during the new year on the days we weren't flying. Here is a recent post from our Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/p/BdqMR-Ul5pR/?hl=en

    On my fist competition as a aerobatics pilot I flew in sports category, one up from the least difficult. I had two known sequences to fly and one unknown sequence to fly. For each flight my score was above 75% and for my second known sequence flight I even managed to reach a 80% score! For my first ever competition I am proud to say that I gained a very reasonable second place in my category.
