13 July Air League successful day at Booker

Booker Gliding - Fri, 07/14/2017 - 07:43
The winds were light, thermal activity late to start, calm conditions with an overcast sky .

Perfect for the 32 Air League young people, here to learn about gliding and experience a flight.

The Gliders were all out and ready to go at 9.08am, everything from a K21 to a Duo Discus was available for the visitors to see.

Gliders lined up before briefing.
 And of course a selection of tow planesToo many people to fit in the standard briefing room.
Huge thanks to Maddi Louis and John, who with the very able assistance of Mel made the ground operations the slickest we have ever seen. Fantastic teamwork meant the flying was all completed a full 2 hours ahead of plan--- very well done to everyone involved.

The Air League guests were all very enthusiastic and were great fun to fly with.

Some weak thermals kept us going during the afternoon, Nick and Glyn trailblazed by going off together in a K21 to prove to everyone it was worth taking a launch.

The day finished with a pleasant meal in the Grouse and Ale , definitely living the dream!

Planet of the Apes arrives at Booker

Booker Gliding - Wed, 07/12/2017 - 19:25

Today turned out to be a great day after a somewhat dull looking start but the weather forecasters got it right with the sky clearing around 11am and a fabulous soaring sky with good lift and obvious clouds to find the lift in.
HA, 118, EN, 161, T4, 949, HSB, LTY and KV were out and all flying x/c. Thanks to Ed who jumped out of his glider to get in a tug and help launch a few before getting back into his glider.
The 2 seaters were busy with course, trial lessons and a group from Go Ape who were all up to experience the delights of soaring above the trees. Thanks to Richard, Graham, Don and Bob who saw that they had a good time and the feedback from them was along the lines of "Awesome!, Brilliant!, Such Fun!"

Port Denia Launches Charter Base for Summer in Ibiza

Super Yachts Charters - Wed, 07/12/2017 - 13:00
Port Denia Launches Charter Base for Summer in Ibiza Sitting somewhere between Valencia and Alicante and perched along on the Spanish coast, Port Denia rests as one of the most ideally positioned superyacht centres in the Western Med.

A stone’s throw from Ibiza (or around 45 miles), the marina’s reputation is growing. An influx of owners, charterers and captains are wisely heading to Port Denia for all the region’s delights, including its calming antithesis to Ibiza which is so often desired. We explore the marina’s tempting draw and discuss its rising popularity with General Manager, Albert Morell…

Spanish Offerings
Coastal Spain is quintessentially Mediterranean. From an evening of freshly caught seafood to spending afternoons on the sun-drenched patios, Port Denia is melting-pot for everything associated with littoral living.

Firstly remarking on Denia itself as a destination in itself, Albert paints a charming and picture-perfect scene; “Denia has become a destination in itself, famous for huge collection of restaurants and tapas bars. There are 4 marinas in Denia - 3 for smaller yachts and our 'Port Denia' for superyachts 30-138m with over 2000 berths overall, so it offers a yachting lifestyle with services to match.

“Denia was additionally awarded status as UNESCO City of Gastronomy (since 2015). We have a 3 Michelin Star restaurant (Quique de Costa), 2 golf courses, a 5 Star Hotel (La Sella Denia) and an endless variety of water sports and activities.”

Denia, then, is a place where exploring hidden coves whilst anchored in the shadows of an imposing 11th Century castle is best followed by an evening sipping sun downers in unexpectedly stylish bars. Provision here for fresh produce, get your golf fix and enjoy a slice of sleepy Spanish paradise. It’s all about location.

White Isle with Ease
However, if staying local isn’t quite your style, Port Denia has the solution. As the surrounding town starts to sleep, just across the warm Balearic waters, Ibiza starts to come alive. In the midst of the summer season, the glittering hub turns into a stunning backdrop for enjoying balmy late nights, and the addictive buzz of Ibiza.

Whilst the White Isle appeal is reflected in its ever-increasing berthing rates, this can be easily avoided by starting and ending your charter at Port Denia. Albert clarifies; “We now have superyachts using Denia as a base for visiting the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Formentera, or just as a base before going to pick up owners or charter guests from other ports and destinations. Often guests will arrive in Ibiza and the superyacht will depart Denia to go and pick them up, returning to Denia when the trip has finished.”

In addition, we discussed the rise of Ibiza and the reason behind its return to exclusive status; “The Balearics have become a hotspot because of the changes in the law regarding superyacht chartering in Spain.They’re a close-by alternative to France and trendy alternative to the Eastern Med, not to mention the great weather.”

Re-Fit for a King
A blissful base for summer charter, Port Denia is more than just a stop-off point for the Balearic chain. With a fully operational shipyard, the shipyard facilities are just one attractive addition to the marina. Albert expands; “In the winter, the marina is always full with either winter berthing or superyachts berthing before and/or after refit/repaint/maintenance work in the shipyard across the water.

"Clients are choosing Denia for the winter because of the shipyard facilities available and the quality of (inexpensive) life here: we have the ability to haul out superyachts up to 1200 GT!"

In fact, 65m M/Y Trident is the latest superyacht to have a full repaint at Port Denia, proving that their facilities are more than accomplished. Allowing owners to service yachts in preparation for the season in the Mediterranean, and even presenting itself as a stop off point before and after Caribbean crossings, Port Denia provides a platform to charter, refit or simply enjoy a charming slice of Spanish life itself.

With the summer season in full-swing, we look forward to seeing an influx of smart owners and charterers getting the best of both worlds at Port Denia.

11 July Persistence pays off

Booker Gliding - Wed, 07/12/2017 - 08:13
The weather today gave us periods of low cloud and rain showers. Jan got us airborne just before the first rain shower arrived, then it was time for coffee. Jack insisted we wait "just a little longer", and he was right - another slot appeared and we managed to finish the days training for Louis - I suppose it's all that sailing that makes him so clever.

The builders still got the crane out, despite the weather, we all hoped the driver didn't drop anything!

Richard arrived all spruced up for yet another meeting with the local council, very important work to help secure our future.

Louis gave the buggies a spring clean in the engine compartments.

Work continues to prepare us for the Regionals starting on Saturday, lots of interesting promotional items have arrived from the sponsors (Hayward Aviation Insurance). That is a week not to be missed.

The Daily Inspection being completed under very grey skies
 Building works continue, Mike pointed out that 2 wheels are off the ground!   A break in the weather occurs and Jack climbs into the Robin Smiling faces, it was worth the wait and Louis gets his training flights.

So it's weather is here, wish you were nice!

10 July Louis has his first flying lesson for a year and Jan calls out the breakdown service

Booker Gliding - Tue, 07/11/2017 - 11:10
Another good day for training. Operating on 24, 3 knot thermals for most of the day.

Louis Mattey started his week of work experience, helping out on the airfield and getting an insight into how we try to make things happen on the field. He was rewarded with a flying lesson, introduced to trimming and stalls.

Trial lessons kept us fairly busy along with Iain Segall who started flying again today after pulling a muscle in his back.

Jan called out the emergency services to get the tug started after suffering a flat battery.


The Emergency service arrived in no time at all. Richards new venture, jump starting light aircraft, good idea Richard but the vehicle does not to be so up market!

For Richard it was probably a welcome break from planning the Regionals grid arrangements. 



National Geographic Kids and Toyota Set New Record for World’s “Largest Toilet-Paper-Roll Sculpture”

National Geographic News Feed - Mon, 07/10/2017 - 21:02

WASHINGTON (July 10, 2017)—National Geographic Kids has officially claimed its 10th GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title, with a 24-foot-tall rocket sculpture constructed from 20,241 toilet-paper-roll tubes!

Partnering with Toyota Highlander on the effort, Nat Geo Kids collected submissions from kids around the world this spring. On May 31, the team formally unveiled the record-breaking structure in a ceremony at Nat Geo headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Jimmy Coggins and a team of surveyors from VIKA Capitol assessed the structure and officially ruled it the “Largest Toilet-Paper-Roll Sculpture” based on its gigantic volume of 12.919 cubic meters, or 456.23 cubic feet.

The project aimed to get kids and families excited about STEM, space and upcycling.

“We thought that building a giant sculpture of a rocket, using toilet-paper-roll tubes we usually just throw away, would be a fun way to get conversations started about upcycling and space,” explained Rachel Buchholz, VP and editor-in-chief of National Geographic Kids magazines and digital. “We were completely blown away by the number of kids who participated and added their own creative art to the entries. It was inspiring to see everyone’s contributions come together to form the colossal rocket!”

Students from the British International School of Washington, who had the opportunity to attend the unveiling ceremony, were the largest single donor to the effort with nearly 800 rolls. YouTube personalities Parry Gripp and Hank Green, former U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis and Major League Soccer stars also contributed their toilet-paper-roll tubes.

Sponsored by Toyota, Nat Geo Kids also partnered on the project with Girls Who Code, The Mars Generation, DIY, National Geographic Education, DreamUp, Life is Good and the California Science Center.

Kids can visit the Nat Geo Kids website to learn more about the record, build their own model rocket, take fun space quizzes and explore more space-related content at natgeokids.com/launch-party.

7 July Comic Relief through the Air League

Booker Gliding - Fri, 07/07/2017 - 17:33
Another very hot day, Strong thermals all day.

The day started with a briefing, all hands to the pumps to fly a number of students. What a great group, great fun and safe.

Air league group sheltering from the sun. 
Many thanks to all the instructors and helpers who helped make it happen smoothly. GH had a minor electrical issue that was quickly sorted out, LH was also made available to us to speed up the launch rate.The Pawnee came back on line today in readiness for the regionals in a weeks time.
Matt continued his training and is now flying basic circuits without any prompting from the back seat---getting close to that solo goal.  Soaring not too shabby as well.

It was good to see the club single seaters in demand, the Pegasus is shown ready to go---or is it?
Of course he didnt take off with the tail dolly on. The ABCD checks are a useful method of avoiding this kind of error.

The evening group took over with Symeon at the helm.

Looking forward to a good weekend.

6 July Another great day, a strange way to keep the K21 trailer cool!

Booker Gliding - Fri, 07/07/2017 - 08:02
The forecasts threatened thunder storms, but these didnt happen. An awkward southerly flow meant we started on 06, but later in the day we moved to 24. Good soaring conditions from midday through to late pm.

Matt Bignold continued his 5 day course, he is now doing the take off and landings, and makinfg very good progress with thermal soaring. Jane and John Wood continued their refresher training and beginning to get back into the groove.

Well done to John Blake, converting into the SZD Junior, good job.

The launch point set up complete by 9 am, now all we need is the pupils! Richard, as always buried in some club admin.


 John, the buggy and trailer wont fit  under the gazebo---you should know that! Or is it a creative way of moving the gazebo to 24.

Regionals just a week away, and another good day tomorrow.

winds very light but favouring 06, mainly blue conditions. Thermals to 4000ft QFE

The good weather brought many people out of the woodwork today, the tug kept busy

Chris Whelan was cleared to fly the junior and had a good soaring flight.

Welcome to Steve Gaze, a new member who also flies at Shalbourne. Steve has a cross country endorsement and is looking to do some cross country flying now.

Booker Gliding - Wed, 07/05/2017 - 07:49
Light winds, lots of cloud cover in the morning, but clearing to give a good soarable afternoon.

We can now see the windsock from the clubhouse window, how is that?

I huffed and I puffed and blew that house down!
Matt Bignold continued his 5 day course making good progress, circuit planning tomorrow!

Jan was tugging for us this morning and Pete took over pm, the Pawnee still in having its brakes fixed.
Pete getting prepared for a busy afternoon
Mike Sheppard continued his PPL training, just need to get aerotowing cracked and we will be there, if only the tug would stay in the right place!


Mike getting ready to flyOliver Heidkamp spent time with Richard learning the tricks of the trade for field landing and navigation. Cross country endorsement complete, well done. Oliver is a pilot from nearby Haddenham.

Various cross country flights during the day, good to see the weather being kind to the single seat pilots.

Graham Saw took the flying into the evening with the busy evening group.

The end to another fine day at Booker.

Superyacht Titania: True Sophistication in Design

Super Yachts Charters - Tue, 07/04/2017 - 16:24
Superyacht Titania: True Sophistication in Design The Lurssen delivery of Titania, a 73m wonder that glided the ocean with poise and elegance, made its interior debut in 2012. This welcome refit combined the stamp of a Lurssen pedigree with the luxe of a Francois Zuretti design offering the ultimate recipe for relaxation. Relinquishing even the wildest of fantasies for any charter guest.

A Dramatic Vision 
Externally, its visual allure is evident. The credibility of a Lurssen build, and glorious Espen Oeino lines appear as striking from afar as up-close, painting a sleek and stylish silhouette against a backdrop of any destination. Her colossal stature of sophistication makes her a true lady of the ocean, with all eyes on such a unique shape, perfect proportion and immaculate detail. With design focus from the outset, there is no doubt this vessel's glamour begins before you set sail, with an on board experience as enjoyable as the vision of her bodacious build.

Beach-Chic Living
As breathtaking as her build, Titania's Beach Club takes its guests into the ultimate euphoria, inviting its guests into ample deck space for miles of ocean views and lazy afternoons spent on its swim up bar, where the sun beats down blissfully. With a swim platform at sea level, its design is an ode to the ocean, integrating guests into an immersive experience of the ocean itself. As the evening turns to dusk, its deck space can be turned into a Night Club for any occasion, transforming its bright, modern day space into a glitzy hub of cocktails and pulsating beats for endless entertainment. 

From Deck to Decedance
Taking the plunge into its pool doesn't end there. Step inside the sumptuous style and quality only derived from the finest of interior designers.  Her Francois Zuretti interior upgrade, just like Oceanco's 62.30m Lady Christina's owes everything to traditionalism, ensuring it pays homage to classic stylings. Its cosy seating area and formal dining room marries warm woods, rich textures and expansive windows, allowing a generous pouring in of natural light. A design that is classic and decedant, it invites guests to enjoy two master suites, a VIP cabin and four doubles, all with beautifully appointed marble bathrooms, boasting underfloor heating with comfort defining he very essence of your stay. 

Meet the Masseuse
Titania cannot boast unrivalled relaxation simply by design alone. An unforgettable experience with one of her qualified Masseuses on board will transcend you into the depths of utopia in a sensory escape. Combine an Elemis and Carita face and body range with a unique Lime and Ginger Salt Scrub allowing you to delve into serenity as you breathe in the salty perfume of the ocean. Built for a sublime escape, its spa facilities distinguish the vessel as a true contender for oceanic indulgence. 

6th-Deck Workouts
With a 6th deck gymnasium, Titania paints the ultimate panoramic views to break a sweat or become the master of meditation with the ocean at your feet. Its stunning enclosed glass veranda is another jaw-dropping design feature that ensures you are engulfed in an azure paradise, with a unique angle of nature at every corner. Being climate-controlled this gymnasium allows you to enjoy the finest fitness equipment and on-board personal trainer in a temperature as cool and comfortable as you desire. 

Azure Escapes
This Lurssen vessel prides itself on its Aqua Park, transforming it suddenly from a paradise portal of relaxation into an activity base for all the family to enjoy. Its complete water park deployed from the beach club adds further to an experience of being at harmony with the sea, providing a safe splash zone, inflatable slide, trampoline and climbing frame - for warm water afternoons basking in island bliss.  

Available to charter with Burgess Yachts, for Summer cruising in the Mediterranean.

3 July New course week starts

Booker Gliding - Tue, 07/04/2017 - 07:31
Wedged between 2 fronts, the day started with overcast at 1800ft, soon lifting to 2200ft and then becoming SCT at 4000ft. Very good thermals late afternoon.

The Pawnee was wheeled around to the workshop for Robin to fit a new set of brakes, good to get that done before the Regionals in 11 days time.

Matt Bignold started his 5 day course today and got treated to some very good thermals later in the afternoon.


Matt describes himself as a "number crucncher" and works in Reading.

Thanks Jim for doing his usual fantastic towing and running around to keep us flying, and all with a big smile.

29 June 2017 LS7 now flying. Richard puts it through its paces

Booker Gliding - Fri, 06/30/2017 - 17:12
After being given a good polish, Richard climbed in the LS7 and put it through its paces.


Hows this strap go then?
Welcome to Mike Sheppard who continued his PPL conversion course in today. 
John Blake resoloed today, very well done to him. He went solo and achieved a bronze C many years ago. lets hope we see more of him and also see a few more solos over the coming months.

28 June Weather is poor, new tea pot is put through initial trials

Booker Gliding - Thu, 06/29/2017 - 09:24
Wall to wall cloud today, only good enough for groundschool.

As you can see on the sounding, pretty cloudy today!

 Of course this didnt stop Bob from testing out the new teapot. The theory is we will save on teabags, any views?
 Richard enjoyed a cup as part of the tasting session.
Graham Saw can be seen trying to escape a photo opportunity. I asked him for an endorsement of the new pot, he declined saying that someone in his position shouldnt be seen to endorse a commercial product. he didnt really I just made that up.

Flyable tomorrow----we hope.
