        Our March Club Meeting and Spring Safety Meeting will be this Saturday, March 16th.

        Location: Gail Borden Library, 270 N. Grove Ave., Elgin, IL 60120 (same location as Nov.)
        Meeting Room: The “Elgin Room” which is located on the second floor.
        Time: Library doors open at 9:00am, we would like to start at 9:15am. (We have the room until noon)

        -In a change from prior years, this will not include breakfast.  SSI will supply coffee, but we could use a couple of volunteers to bring donuts, muffins, or other goodies.  If you can help, please reply to this message so that we know who is bringing what.  

        –We’ve gotten approval from the FAA to offer WINGS credit for the Safety Meeting.  For those who are registered for the WINGS program, we’ll need your email address when you sign in on Saturday so that we can make sure you receive credit.

        – For first timers, traditionally after the meeting we head over to the field to assemble the gliders and prepare for the 2019 soaring season. For those who are kind of new to this, please remember to dress for being outdoors with temps in the 30’s in early afternoon.

              I believe it still applies that attending each year the Sky Soaring safety meeting is required by all Sky Soaring members.  If you attended the Chicagoland Glider Council’s seminar on Feb 23rd, or another aviation safety meeting, this will also count.


              Also for beginner pilots it is important to have practical knowledge of the assembly of a glider which is part of the FAA’s “PRIVATE PILOT Practical Test Standards for GLIDER” (link below).  Helping during assembly day fulfills this requirement.




              You should be there!
