I also flew a winch launch which is a fast and steep launch which accelerates from 0-60mph in just a few seconds!

First single seater K23 flight

As usual it was a cloudy day at the London Gliding Club but it was still flyable, just.  After a check flight I was cleared to have my first flight in a single seater glider, the K23.
