Swanborough With South Downs Hang Gliding

I was still seeking my flying confidence after I had completed my CP training. John Barratt from South Downs Hang Gliding once again invited me out to join in with the school. I admit to feeling somewhat guilty about taking John's time like this, but was also grateful for the opportunity and the excuse to fly.

What followed was an enjoyable afternoon on the hill with some of John's students followed by a short top to bottom on my Calypso.
