A Year in the Life of an Aeromodeller

(D Robertson)

 

Well, another year has bitten the dust, so just how well did you do on the flying stakes? Our man Terry Shields keeps a detailed log of all his aeronautical excursions, just for the fun of it he assures us. So, once again (just for the fun of it) here`s the bare bones of his 2017 exploits.

 

Not bad you may say, but very lean pickings compared to the bumper year in 2010 when he managed 139 outings!

 

Once again a poor year for slope soaring, but I would guess that age and enthusiasm have had a bearing on the above figures, like Terry, most of us preferring the comforts of Kerloch on a calm day.  Interestingly, our man travelled a staggering  3,000 miles to throw some assorted bits of balsa / depron into the air and decanted around 180 cups of tea from his thermos in the process ...... no wonder he has to “pee” so often!

 

Have a look at your own stats and see if you can beat that!
