Assembly Day a Success (in Springfield)

While NESA kept busy with assembling their gliders and giving their members season check rides Tim (PM), Tom Hopper (TH) and myself (PM) all had nice glider flights.

The wind finally died down and conditions were actually quite good. Tim flew for well over 2 hours while I towed with the Pawnee and then we switched aircraft.  Both Tim and I found weak wave after topping out a strong thermal @ ~ 6000′ and I made it to 7K, Tim maybe a bit higher. Visibility was clear right to Mt. Washington, really spectacular day.

Reminder that the L-19 should be ready to go on the 20th, that’s our hope anyway.
