A short comment on the SSF’s Wing Runner course i was renewing. I might get beat up on this, but i think one of the Quiz questions is misleading concerning a runway conflict. I probably got it marked wrong, the last time I took the course. Has to do with T.O. Ops ready to launch, and Wing Runner notices a sailplane on BASE LEG for landing.  SSF answer:  TP and sailplane to be moved off runway. This choice seems difficult to perform in the short time (~40  sec) remaining in the landing sequence, ….at least tough for the glider that was ready to depart, and minimal field staff alongside the wing runner. Anyway, my 2 cents.
