I'm thinkin' about a glider rating.


Hi Frank,
First . . . sorry for your loss.
As to glidering . . . Perhaps even more so than a tailwheel, the sailplane will learn ya what those foot rest are really for<grin>.

Regards,
Tom Charlton (who’s not flown a sailplane in many a year<ng>)

I think, from time to time, of selling mine. But I have a fear that a new owner would not care for it.

Make no mistake, my airplane isn't exactly pretty. But it flies and is mechanically sound. I've done a lot to keep it that way.

It'd bug me to learn that it was parked in the local equivalent of Corrosion Corner someplace.

The only power airplane I ever had ended its days with an owner who didn't quite get density altitude...:-(

Tom, you've hit on my motivation. I have been a pretty good IFR work-the-system pilot but never notably slick on the stick & rudder stuff. I feel that lack and hope that glider-ing may help fill it in.

There's a glider field over in Front Royal, VA, about a 1:40 drive from home. I figure I can go over there early in the day, get a couple of flights in, have lunch, get a couple of flights in, and go home.

Meanwhile, heat wave predicted here for Fri thru Mon. Temps 95+. Does that lead to good thermals?

Not in and of itself. Here are some of the variables involved:

Front Royal....what a pretty spot, nestled in the valley!

Very interesting, Ralph. I believe I'll bookmark that.

I didn't want a particular person/company to get hold of my little helicopter. I refused several times to sell it to him. However, the guy who bought it, used it for the summer, flew off the hours and then sold it to this person. I can only hope that one of his pilots doesn't put it in Long Island Sound or somewhere in the Caribbean sea.

Sad!
