Upcoming Changes and Notices to Pilots

In November, the gliding site are going to run a trial winch using the grass runway in the westerly direction. This means there will be a control point at Delta. The gliders are NOT intending landing on our 23 but landing where they land now. It should not affect our flying but may require extra vigilance. Do not overfly the gliders, turn before them.
