Soaring Report Saturday 5/25/2019

Posted by on May 25, 2019

It was a nice day flying in Blair today with the Omaha Soaring Club. A total of ten flights with a combination of training and introductory rides. We have two new members that took their first flights with us today (KC and Dan). Welcome gentleman!
A new club CFI (David Twibell) and tow pilot shared duties with me, and town pilot duties with Frank. Frank had 7 tows starting us off at 11 am, and David had 3 as we finished ops at 3:30 pm.
I’d like to thank everyone for a job well done. Everyone pitched in early and stayed late to put the birds away. A special thank you to Tom S who called to make sure things were going smooth and Bob A who came by to keep the ground ops organized.
The only thing that we didn’t have today were thermals. Most flights averaged 16 minutes, the longest being 22.
Have a nice holiday weekend,

Steve R
