Mr. Pattie

Following competitive tendering, a contract has been placed for the supply of 100 Grob G103 Twin II Acro gliders. The Central Gliding school will receive the first gliders in September. A small quantity of winches, which provide one of the launching methods used, will shortly be ordered for evaluation in use with the new gliders.
