I am told that winter is a great time to start learning to glide, when the air is a lot more stable than it is in the warmer months. I will be honest, I want to do this principally because it is a very affordable way to convert to 3-axis control. But I do have to say that I am attracted, also, to the intelligence of gliding...the fact that you have to read the sky and get your judgements right; the fact that when it comes to landing, for instance, there is no such thing as a go-around!

Meanwhile, Craig has very kindly offered to re-wire my trike, which has an appalling embarrassment of a loom under the dash. You only have to look at the elegance of his own lay-out to know what kind of a job he will do on my aeroplane.
