Tim Milner wins FCC Club class, Prievidza, for third consecutive year

Congratulations to Tim Milner who last month won the Club Class of the Flight Challenge Cup at Prievidza, Slovakia, for the third year running. During the nine days of tasks Tim was never lower overall than second place in the total scores and led after the two final days.

Tim writes “One of the most popular international gliding competitions attracting entries from as far as Australian and South Africa. Briefings are given in English and the airfield has excellent facilities. The club will host the 2019 European Championships. In April the flat wide valleys have short crop making for comfortable outlandings. Many of us have also experienced the areas where it’s best not to get too low! Longest tasks flown were 500km with a cloud base of 9500ft it was possible to soar the 8500ft Tatra Mountains which form the western part of the Carpathian range. Flights can also include the occasional trips into Poland, Czech Republic and as far south to the flatlands of Hungary.

105 competitors in 3 classes Club, 15m and Combi. Class winners were (Combi) World number 1 Sebastian Kawa from Poland, (15m) Czech Champion Miloslav Chink and (Club) Tim Milner UK, who won for the 3rd consecutive year.”

"... but the experience of flying like a bird is out of this world"

Travel writer Paul Miles visited Pocklington in February to research an article about the 200th anniversary of the Pocklington canal. While he was in Pocklington he had an opportunity to fly from Wolds GC with instructor Mark Ridger and see the canal, the town and the Wolds from a bird’s eye view. He wrote about his experience in the article which appeared in the Daily Telegraph in mid-May.

Paul said

“Today, the former airfield is the home of the Wolds Gliding Club. For £90 you can enjoy a peaceful tandem flight, sitting in the front seat of a one-ton fibreglass glider with a 62ft wingspan, the pilot behind you. Far below, the Vale of York, the twisting canal and the gateway town are fairly unremarkable; but the experience of flying like a bird is out of this world.”

[Note: 2018 price for a voucher flight was set after the article was written and is £95. The ASK21 glider Paul flew in has a maximum takeoff weight of 600kg and a wingspan of 17m (56ft)]

As the BGA says “... there is no upper age limit for gliding”. This year our visitors at Pocklington have included Doug, 93, Harry, 90, Alice, 90, and, most recently, Jean, 88. They had all received gliding vouchers to celebrate their various birthdays. Harry and Alice were also doing it to support good causes – Harry raising almost £1,000 for Lupus UK and Alice more than £1,500 for Arthritis Research UK.

32nd Two-Seater Comp – the last post...

When the dust settled after the 32nd Two-Seater Competition there was one major trophy still to be awarded, the Pete Redshaw Trophy, donated by Lakes GC, for the Most Meritorious Flight during the competition. For 2017 it goes to Steve Nock for the Janus TV’s day winning flight down the Trent Valley to Belvoir Castle. The trophy will be personally delivered to Steve by Wolds GC chairman Steve Wilkinson.

TSC 2017 Winners Steve Nock

Devon and Somerset’s team have again produced their own account of the competition, much influenced perhaps by the application of the “waters of Jura” which flow liberally in their narrative which can be read at
