Not all Cumbria flying sites involve long treks uphill. Here's a good picture of Rick Livingstone flying at St Bees on the Cumbrian Coast. The view is looking to the south and the tide's well out

September has come and gone and the temperature is notching downwards! On the 27 September a group went over to Cautley Spout and flew this great site on the eastern side of the Howgills. Ed Cleasby is the pilot on his AirDesign Volt wing. The Great Dummacks/Calder ridge is behind Ed with another CSC site, Barkin Fell, in the distance behind the wing (where conditions a little later in the day were more 'entertaining'). At Cautley, Ed Cleasby reports that "the flying was an absolute delight". Photo by John Hamlett

In July, Steve Kitchen, Gordie Oliver and Malcolm Grout spent the day giving tandem flights to a group of people with Multiple Sclerosis. 8 flights were managed with one using a special buggy to get airborne. Here you can see preparations for take off in place for a flight off Latrigg. Great effort!

Action at the Lakes Charity Classic! Take off was challenging but the evening flydown at the LCC proved good entertainment value. The LCC was held in Buttermere - this is the south east end of the lake with the path up Haystacks visible.

Rod Welford snapped this majestic shot of the Buttermere Valley on 31 March. The pilot is Chris Scammell on the maiden flight of his BGD Tala wing. Rod says "What struck me was the bare beauty drawn from the stark barreness during that spell of cold dry Easterlies. Whilst taking in the Loweswater/Lorton vista the winter scene reminded me of an apt verse about the Lakeland Fells:" Who sees them only in their summer hour Sees but their beauty half and knows not Half their power" Robert Southey 1774-1843

The last 2 weeks of March have seen relentless strong easterly winds and biting cold. On 28 Feb, Pete Southern reports that it was a stunning day. He was hoping to fly on Wetherlam and came across Dave Robinson and James on Great Carrs ready to take off. Here is Dave in action with Wetherlam in the background.

Spring is on it's way even if it is still very cold! The end of the month has seen some superb sunny conditions; very frustrating if you're stuck at work. On 15 February Al Westle and a group of pilots were on Latrigg on a bitterly cold day with a strong wind. Here Jackie Knights and James Harrison prepare to fly. The view is to the East North East with Blease Fell in the centre left of the photo. Photo by Al Westle.
