Gordon took Judith on a microlight flight yesterday. Gordon’s enthusiasm and experience put Judith at ease and she thoroughly enjoyed the trip up the Northumberland coast. Here a a couple of images that I took yesterday.

Excellent training at Eshott in a friendly and easy going environment, great club with lots of support and advice from everyone. Cheers!
