During all this time there is one VR in the uk that I do like the look of but it isn't in my price range at the moment and I make it a rule to not borrow money, but I email Steve Elkins at Avian to find out more about the glider. It's great condition, no repairs, and had just had a full Service and Check over at A.I.R in Germany. It sounds great but I still haven't got the money.
After talking to Steve about my future goals, my current flying and some of my minor past achievements he offers to sponsor me and gives me a fantastic deal on the glider. We agree on the terms and I pay the deposit. I officially own a beautiful Atos VR. But even better am now sponsored by the only UK importer of A.I.R.
We have been talking about where to put the logos on the glider so that they will be in good camera shot and also readable from the ground up to a certain height. I'm very excited about the whole thing. Here are some pictures of my glider (being flown by Ollie Chitty).
Thanks to Avian for the opportunity.
