May 4th – We share Ontur with Skydivers

No real problem with such a big airfield, they were quite friendly and hopefully will supply us with some fuel. It did mean we had to find somewhere else to brief.. as you can see.

The day itself was pretty good with a very easy 320k or 360k done by the X/C pilots. Cloud base reached 9000′ with some sizeable thermals to match. Ontur was slightly more active and just produced a light shower at the end of the day.

We are expecting a jump in temperatures starting today and that should make things even better.
