Pilot's meeting started 10 am. Mark, our CD, and Kerry, our CM, simply know how to put on a show. Brief, to the point and excellent side shows for weather, griding, and taxiway/ tow out use, etc. The weather, well some of the models are good, others need to be trashed. A lot of conflicting...

I know there are plenty of guys who come into soaring after years of sailing. Wings horizontal in one and vertical in the other.... Is there anyone managing to do both to their satisfaction, particularly non-retired types? Or is it madness to try to be a fairly serious, recreational soaring pilot...

SAFE Winch Launching by Derek Copeland[_2_]
To all my friends in the United States of America. You may have got the impression from some recent correspondence on this site that winch launchings is about as risky as bungey jumping or joining a Kamikaze squadron! In fact we do many tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of winch...
