Remember, you will need to have a fully trained crew for winch ops.

The only glider currently available for the winch is the 2-33. However, before flight it will need a thorough cleaning after sitting outside all winter. A type of mold or fungus is growing on it which will need to be removed as it is eating the paint. Also, a critical assembly check, lubing of all moving parts and a comprehensive preflight inspection.

Other jobs include getting the 1-26 out of hangar storage, inspected and lubed.  Installing the new canopy on the Krosno, inspecting and lubing.  Getting the PW-5 out of storage and anchoring the trailer.

As you can see we have much work to do, may I suggest a work crew on Saturday. 😉
