We have at York a Bronze Badge curriculum, and a PTR (Pilot Training Record) card, similar to the one you used on your ab initio training.

And, as in years past, Tony and I, and others as required (rigging the 1-34, the use of XC Soar) are able and willing to offer both the theory/classroom stuff, and the in-air practical parts.

This, particularly the theory part, would be better done as a group at a scheduled time, with the practical flying part in the convective-time afternoon.

Tim Belchior too is planning to offer some X/C opportunities, but I believe he is going to focus on the already Silver C Badge-accomplished pilots.

York has never before had such good equipment for the aspiring X/C pilot in terms of aircraft, flight computers, GPS flight recorders. It's a great time to start :mrgreen:
