Gliding Champions

Posted By Sports Development Officer on 31/10/2017

The AU Gliding Club made a strong showing at the South Australian Gliding Association annual awards presentation this year with instructors Derek and Leigh taking home half of the trophies. Derek won the Fred's Finial trophy for his epic 8hr 543km soaring flight in the club's motorfalke last summer, a flight that is now legendary around the world with operators of this type. Leigh took the News & Mail trophy for his 18,400 wave flight last year, the Kevin Sedgman state trophy for the best 3 distance flights in a club class glider, and the winter trophy for the longest (311km) flight made in the winter period in SA.
