Have glider, can fly
The glider I ordered from WW on 2/2/12 finally arrived this week. I picked it up from John Alden @WesMar on Wednesday and it flies like a dream. I can now start to participate in Kentuckiana flight ops. Looking forward to flying w/y'all.

Sweet! As soon as I (order and) get my new DT I'm game!

Got a U2 145 with the Hydranet LE & TE. It goes slow, it goes fast, it turns when I tell it to, and it wants to land on my two feet! The flare window isn't a window, it is a wide-open garage door. Needless to say, I am tickled.

Sounds like my Sport 2 :-)

Sarah is EXTREMELY close to beign able to fly with us.

Previously, Sarah has been doing scooter training first at High Perspective in Toronot and then at WesMar. Unfortunately, she just wasn't making much progress.

Last month we went down to QuestAir for tandem aerotow training. Our goal was to spend two weeks there. Unfortunately, weather didn't cooperate (Tropical Storm Debbie anyone?), so we headed north to Lookout.

Three days of training at lookout and Mikey and Ozzie were both saying she was "very close", but then her final day with Clifton set her back. You don't want to get me started on that...

I think two more solid weekends and she may be good to fly with us locally. So maybe by mid-August we might finally be ready to fly locally.

That's awesome! The more the merrier!!

I would love to hear more about the Clifton setback. If you don't want to blast it here publicly I would appreciate a PM. If you don't mind sharing .... I've had a not so great experience with LMFP so I'm curious as to what Sarah's is about.

Wow. Outstanding. Reaching the critical mass of enough people for regular outings is a process of one-by-one. GO SARAH!

Kent and I talked on the phone last week-end about possibly scooter towing in Tipton Friday, assuming he is not taking on a driving job that day. Steve, are you up for it? Patrick
