The Soarers took off today in booming conditions. Members set PRs with flights up to 10,100 (J Scott).
After annualing the PW5, I took off to join the festivities. It flew fine but I got a sled ride and almost beat the tow plane to the ground. My bad luck spread and an avalanche of gliders followed me to the ground.
MM did most of the tows and got the Krosno to the highest heights.
Before leaving the Hinckley area I
called Rochelle on the radio and asked if they were having sky
diving operations. They confirmed they were, so we avoided their
airspace well to the east.?? You don’t want to fly gliders under
falling parachutists. That could ruin your whole day.
