June 17-18 Schedule UPDATE

It’s just not happening.  No soaring Sunday!

The weather once again buoyed our hopes only to dash them… Hung around the airport all morning hoping to fly but finally decided at 11am that we might as well make lemonade from lemons and use the low clouds for practice IFR approaches since soaring wasn’t going to work out.

 

 

June 10-11 Schedule

 

Looks like good weather again!  A few regulars are unavailable this weekend but we should have enough to have some fun.  Starting a bit later due to John having morning commitments, but shooting for 11:30 start time both days.

Volunteers for Saturday, June 10– start time 11:30am
Tow Pilot – Rob Montgomery
Instructor – John Gary
Safety Officer (Wing Runner) – Sue Tholen
Duty Officer – TBD

Volunteers for Sunday, June 4 — start time 11:30am
Tow Pilot – Sue Tholen
Instructor – John Gary
Safety Officer (Wing Runner) – Rob Montgomery
Duty Officer – TBD

June 3/4 weekend schedule

Saturday winds have kicked up a bit beyond our comfort level and are 90 deg from the glider runway, so NO flying.  Hoping for better on Sunday.

Looks like good weather again.  We’re going to try to ask that those most interested in training arrive early (i.e. 11am) and those more interested in finding lift arrive a little later, like 1pm.  Not sure how that will work and nothing firm, but worth a try!

Volunteers for Saturday, June 3– start time 11am
Tow Pilot – Rob Montgomery
Instructor – John Gary
Safety Officer (Wing Runner) – Sue Tholen
Duty Officer – TBD

Volunteers for Sunday, June 4 — start time 11am
Tow Pilot – Sue Tholen
Instructor – John Gary
Safety Officer (Wing Runner) – Tom Dundzila
Duty Officer – TBD

May 27/28 (Memorial Day) Weekend

Looks like another good weekend on deck once Friday’s rain clears out.  We’ll plan to start at ~ 11am both days.  No flying planned for Monday, but weather looks iffy anyway!

Tow Pilot – Rob Montgomery
Instructor – Sue Tholen
Safety Officer (Wing Runner) – Russell Sullivan
Duty Officer – Tom Dundzila

Opening Day for 2017 Soaring

Gliding starts May 6… Sorry I can’t say it’s 100% sure yet, but in aviation that should be familiar to all of you!

We’re still trying to get a few last-minute items ironed out, some volunteers’ schedules have changed, and weather is of course unpredictable but we are still hoping to assemble and do some flying on May 6&7 weekend.   The personnel list is now as below.  Will update timing details as we get closer.

Volunteers for Saturday, May 6
Tow Pilot – Sue Tholen
Instructor – John Gary
