York Soaring Trip


Thanks to Ryan for organizing COPA 172's trip to York Soaring, September 18, 2016.  

Fog in the morning forced everyone to drive rather than fly to CPC3 Walter's Field near Aurthur. The fog cleared around noon and in the afternoon the scattered cumulus clouds provided excellent opportunities to gain lift for soaring.  We were given introductory flights in an open cockpit Slingsby T21 and a newer Grob 103.
