I’ve got my wings! Thanks to my ace instructor Keith Francis. He is the gentleman in the red shirt.
With just on 3 months training and on my second flight for the day, Keith silently left my side. With the glider in all sorts of trouble, I did manage to put all he had taught me into practice and bring my glider to a reasonable landing with a cheer from all the members behind me.
Keith was quick in determining on day one to train me on mode two due to my hand tremor. I haven’t looked back on that decision. He has a gentle and encouraging manner, with his quick as a flash “I’ve got that Brendan”, saved my plane again and again.
Thank you Keith. I will enjoy many hours with my eyes to the sky for years to come.
