July 7-8 schedule

With the cold front passage from Friday, hoping to get some lift this weekend!  And better yet we won’t swelter in the process!!

Still working out who’s volunteering when so info below to change, but planning to start early both days to get time in for trainees and also allow time for soaring if there IS lift.

Schedule for July 4, 2018

It sounds like there just might be enough interest to get some soaring in this Wednesday, although we’ll be a little short on instructor staff. Rob Montgomery is the only available tow-plane pilot and the only available instructor, so dual-instruction is obviously not going to happen. But, supervised solos are in the cards.

The weather forecast says it will be warm and flyable, so let’s hope for some thermals and plan to start flying at 10am.

Tow Pilot – Rob Montgomery

Duty Instructor – Rob Montgomery (sort of)

Safety Officer – TBD

Duty Officer – TBD

Start Time – 10AM

June 30-July 1 Schedule

Looks like Sunday will be a repeat of Saturday, hot and humid and stable, so not much lift, but possibly good for some training.  Windy.com shows some weak coastal convergence late morning but nothing interesting later…  Of course if Eric were here I’m sure he’d prove me wrong!

Rob towing and Sue instructing Sunday starting at 10am.
Call or text if you plan to arrive later since we may shut down earlier than usual if the turnout is light as currently expected.

Email if you’re interested in soaring on July 4th — there just might be enough interest and volunteers to operate, especially if lift looks good that day!
