First solo in G-GRLS

The first solo ever in G-GRLS was achieved on Tuesday by William Cave after just 12 hours flying instruction! Very well done Will! He has dabbled with gliding since he was 16 so that helped him make this solo date. Our rather well known aircraft, build by girls at Benadean School in Kent, has been at Kemble for nearly three months now and covered over 100 hours instructional flying already. Will, 30, of Wotton-Under-Edge is quite at home with aircraft as for the MOD he looks after engineering and certification of our fast jet aircraft fleet!
