Interested in trying gliding or learning to fly a glider? You've come to the right place! The Adelaide University Gliding Club welcomes everyone, not just those attending Adelaide Uni. We operate from Stonefield airfield - about 110km north east of Adelaide - most weekends and public holidays.

Flying 26 & 27 July 2014

Thanks to everyone up on the weekend for helping out and making both days happen. For those learning to drive the winch, well done and keep up the good work (and to those teaching and supervising those learning, thank you for your patience and persistence).

There was some thermal activity on both days, although Sunday was a little bit better than Saturday for the thermals. Ben Carter and Derek Spencer got to 4300’ today and had a 53 minute flight. On one flights with Ben and Derek got to 2250’ indicated on the launch (i.e. 1900’ AGL) in the K13. Awesome stuff. Despite the wind dropping off to less than 5 kts on the ground late in the day, Jarryd Ligertwood reported getting 2700’ indicated on the launch in the K8. Who needs an aero-tow when you can winch launch to over 2000’ AGL!

Flying Saturday 28 June 2014

A blustery day with very strong winds from the SW and the odd shower of rain. Not to mention very cold. So no flying in the morning and early afternoon which was good as the new K-13 weighing had to be done. We also spent time marking out a compass rose between the AUGC hanger & the private hanger so we can swing the compass in the new K-13.

By mid afternoon the weather started to moderate and by 1530ish we were able to get the K-13 out and down to RWY 23. We had 2 AEFs, each of which had 2 flights, and then 2 training flights before the lack of daylight meant we had to pack up for the day. All the flights had good launches due to wind aloft but were essentially extended circuits.

The evening was spent releasing stored carbon from wood and having a BBQ.
