I don’t have an issue with the mile high club scenic ride for day members. I do wonder a bit about John D’s math though. In this case I think of the mile high club as being a tow to 5280′ agl. An additional 2280′ above a regular scenic day ride tow to 3000 agl which would be 3890 msl. Top of a mile high tow being 6,170 msl. Of course we could save a bunch of tow time by offering the One Kilometer Club scenic ride. That would only add an extra 280.84 feet to the regular day member scenic flight! All kidding aside a cool thought about the mile high tows is if we took the day member to Marengo in the Lark and then of course flew back to SSI. They would get a bit of a taste for cross country as well as seeing some countryside. John Lincoln
