Gransden Lodge - Caxton Gibbet - Hardwick - Gransden Lodge
|Minimum set-off height||3,000 ft|
|Airspace||Stay below 5,200 ft QFE south of Gransden. If you are low over Bourn airfield, land rather than getting in the way of Bourn traffic!|
|BGA Ladder Points||121|
|Suitable weather conditions||winds from north or east with moderate thermals or better|
This task is a simple triangle towards the north of the airfield. Turn points can easily be recognised from the air, and Bourn airfield is a suitable land-out option if you cannot make it back to Gransden Lodge. Do the task when winds are from the north or east so you are blown back towards the airfield.
You can also do the task in reverse.
