Flying September 9th

Post by Jacob Dutto » Sun Sep 08, 2019 4:53 pm

Hi,
I am hoping to come out tomorrow (sept. 9) around 2:00PM. I was wondering if there will be any instructors around to do me pre-solo flight.

Thanks,
Jacob Dutto

I really hope we are flying tomorrow too, it looks like a pretty good day according to Dr Jack. Do we have a tow pilot able to come out?

Is anyone coming out to the club today (Monday). If we're not flying I could use a quick hand towing the glider back to its tie-down.

Looks like the forecast has softened for today, with an intrusion of low cloud from the SE. I'll figure out how to get the glider back on its tie-down.

Thanks to Dave and Gabor for getting us flying. The day turned out good after all, I didn't see any of the low cloud that was forecast, and Mark reported good lift up to 5400 msl :)
