I’d like to add a topic idea, between #4 & 8, even tho I cannot instruct. It would be authored by one of our instructors that are SSI accomplished CC flyers, to help those of us lagging that skill.
As a power pilot, I have done many long CC flights SEL, ..the planning, the ADM in flight, risks, but doing it in a sailplane is still eluding me to this day. Being able to go to a destination, and return safely in these congested airspaces, should hold a place in the learning. Thanks, Denny
