New, updates and upcoming events from 60th Bradford North Thornton Scout Troop

A further 6 Scouts have the opportunity to Fly!


Another 6 of Thornton’s Scouts were fortunate enough to fly at Sutton Bank Airfield with members of the Yorkshire Gliding Club this weekend.

After a slow start due to poor visibility and a low cloudbase, we were eventually able to fly all 6 Scouts.

One bonus of the poor weather was a bonus simulator session, in which each Scout had the unique opportunity to “land” (ahem…crash) the Glider in a safe, controlled, albeit realistic environment.

As always a massive thanks to the volunteer instructors – another 6 satisfied Scouts!
