Intro flight

On Saturday, March 16th, Jennifer Baltimore flew out with Julie Butler in Julie's Cessna 150 to experience her first glider flight. The winds were strong departing San Luis Obispo and there was some light turbulence over the hills west of Avenal. We arrived just as the glider was pulled out onto the flight line. Although bumpy to the west, the air over Avenal was fairly stable; Dan Gudgel was able to give Jennifer a taste of smooth glider conditions - she was thoroughly pleased.

While Jennifer was up, Steve Schery and Julie went for a tour of landing strips on the west side of the Temblors in preparation for some flights in the convergence during the upcoming season. Another beautiful day in Avenal!

  1. When can we get a report on the landing strip tour?

    1. Nothing that you haven't seem, I'm sure. We checked out Hidden Valley, tne old, closed stip in Cholame valley, and Shandon. It was more just to show Steve where they were; I did not do any crop dusting simulation to get an idea of runway conditions.
