So it’s looking like Memorial Day weekend will be ‘opening weekend’ for the soaring club. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather.
As of 5pm Saturday, the tow plane is all done except for a few electrical hookups, tracking (wheel shims), and weight/balance plus final inspection. Who knew hooking up two wing fuel lines could take 8 hours?
Rich, our A&P/IA, will likely be at the airport Sunday morning to sign off the glider logbooks and do the remaining inspection work. Hopefully no surprises, so if true and weather clears we may do the test flight Sunday afternoon and be ready to rock and roll next weekend!
