It was an active Saturday, with twelve flights despite the low ceilings that lingered for a couple of hours. We started with Hanna M. for her second FAST flight with Steve. Then, John H. and Steve R. flew a couple of pattern tows, which were followed by Jaime A. taking a flight with Bob A. John and Steve flew another pattern tow before two FAST Kit purchasers (Bryan and Danial) each took their first flight with Steve. Dave L. flew a solo in the L-23, and we also launched Jeff F. in his 1-26. Steve was in the instructor seat again with Jacob M., who has just formally joined OSCI. Welcome, Jacob! We launched Jeff for another flight in his 1-26, and Steve and John did yet another pattern tow to complete the day. Frank did all the towing today.
Of note is that Jeff F. has completed the restoration of his 1966 John Deere Lawn and Garden tractor, which he is using to tow his 1964 1-26 out to the flight line and back. The vintage tractor and vintage glider look like new:
Jeff, the vintage owner…does not look like new!
