So we turned it into a great training and transition day. Yours truly played OD for the day. Eric road shotgun with new-b Peter A. on 5 flights. RC models and CONDOR have helped move Peter rapidly toward becoming a great glider pilot. Tows and landings looked very smooth… He also had his first practice rope break - watch the video on the post above this one. Well done, Pete!
And speaking of great glider-pilots, JD transitioned to the 1-26. With an extensive pre-briefing in the am followed by a quick pattern flight in the 33, JD executed a nicely controlled tow and perfect landing in the 26. He’s apparently smitten! He followed that with 2 more consecutive flights which included some thermaling along with the happy sound of an UP VARIO!
I’m guessing the 33 will now have one less suitor and should b the principle province of Vince and Peter!
