January started with clear skies and lots of snow. One of the difficulties in flying was getting to take off and the cold! Here, Pete Rycroft can be seen in Ennerdale with Pillar as the highest peak on the skyline. Photo by Ed Cleasby.

It just had to be this one! Monday 28 December provided a superb afternoon's flying for the 14 CSC pilots who made the long walk up Blease Fell to the summit ridge. Dave Horne took this photo of Mal Grout and Paul Smith enjoying the lift at its best. Dave reports that " It was so smooth that you could fly virtually hands-off for the whole time in the air."

Summer evening Lakes flying at its best! Dave Horne took this picture at 2000 on 22 June over Barton Fell and Ullswater. Lance Greenhalgh is the pilot. He reports that there was "incredible lift (despite the late hour) plus stunning views with every turn. We spent nearly 2 hours wafting smoothly along the ridges from Barton to High Street at 1,500 to 2,800ft. Nirvana!!" The rest of this month's submissions can be found here

June 2009

May has been a challenging month after an epic Easter in April. Strong winds and poor weather has provided limited opportunities for flying. A window opened up on Friday 29 May when a brilliant day was marred by strongish winds from the SE. Oportunities were available on Blease Fell and Barkin Fell. Dave Horne was flying on Blease and caught this picture of Malcolm Grout. Clough Head is on the left of picture and the Helvellyn ridge is behind Malcolm. Dave reports that it had been lively before this but it was settling down nicely when the picture was taken.
