Sunday turned out to be a great day for our pilots! JD went up in the '26 for a 30 minute flight to stir things up and let the Lift Gods know that we had some high expectations for the day ahead. Evidently, it worked because every flight after that was considerably longer than his paltry half hour! What he lacked in staying power, he certainly made up for in getting the lift out. The image to the left is Pete's trace, a nice three hour flight in the 1-26! We're going to have to start calling him leatherbutt! Dave hung with him for hours of fun in 19LK. Stefan and Greg each had a turn in the Lark. Mamat and our alternate Dave had a good long flight in the 2-33 - again proving that Central VA has plenty of good soarable weather. After Dave and Mamat came down, Eric took Marybeth up for a ride. Hopefully she had a great time and we'll see her back again!
