Friday started early, Mike was at the airport by 7 am, unfortunately the fog was relentless. Ben, Paul, Mike S, Andy and I all waiting until nearly noon before it cleared enough to fly. Fortunately our patients was rewarded with great flying conditions.
Ben wanted to finish training today which meant 10 flights to get done, everything else was completed earlier this fall. With the great flying conditions and his newly acquired skills he was able to achieve his goal. He nailed every take off and landing. Congratulations Ben!
Andy R has been dreaming of this day for a very long time. Today he made his first flight (and his second too). He looked like a natural, easily launching the wing overhead and running into the sky. None of the typical newbie mistakes. Just plan old smooth flying. Both landings were on target and on his feet, a rarity for a first timer. Way to go Andy! The fun is just beginning.
Paul also added flights to his log book today. He is now just 5 flights and a few skills away from graduation. Keep up the good work Paul!
Mike S unboxed his new Ozone Roadster 3! This is a nice update for the popular Roadster wing. Some really neat new features on this beautiful wing. We all enjoyed kiting it and I enjoyed flying it. Very stable in the sky but not boring. Thanks for sharing Mike!
Peter was also there working on his kiting skills before returning to Taiwan for winter break. He will probably be flying next time we meet. Woohoo!
