With a super week of weather for gliding at North Hill, the July course enjoyed flying in blazing sunshine on four of the five days – Wednesday being the only day that the course was rained off.

However, the latter poor weather enabled course members to catch up on some theory with a series of briefings from instructors Stuart Procter and Martin Woolner.

Congratulations to friends and work colleagues Dave Herbert from Exmouth and Lukasz Kieruczenko from Exeter, who both achieved their Bronze level during the week, and solo aerotow.

Unity Five Limited is a software development company formed in 2010 by Dave Herbert and Lukasz Kieruczenko, specialising in web and mobile applications. Currently their software products are used across the UK and Republic of Ireland. The company is rapidly expanding with 27 employees and is just about to enter the US market.

Lukasz Kieruczenko said: “We didn’t stop after going solo and both achieved over 20 hours as pilots in command. It’s been an amazing journey and all the instructors at DSGC were extremely helpful. We learn something new with every flight. Our next goal is to get a cross-country endorsement and buy our own glider.”

Try gliding by starting with a trial lesson. Find out about trial lessons at Devon & Somerset Gliding Club and purchase and book online by visiting their website, dsgc.co.uk
