After the excitement of Competition Enterprise last week, it was anything but ‘back to normal’ at North Hill this week for members of the Devon and Somerset Gliding Club (DSGC), writes Jill Harmer.

A demonstrator glider ‘Perkoz’ and Allstar PZL Company owner Bernd Hager arrived along with Polish aerobatic champion and test pilot Michal Ombach.

The Perkoz glider (Grebe in Polish) was put through its paces by Michal with DSGC Club members trying it out for size and evaluation.

Some good feedback was received particularly from those who enjoyed the aerobatic demonstrations from an expert.

More than 40 members tried out the demonstrator although some found the cockpit size a little challenging!
