Comment: Carl Lindgren passes Glider checkride.
Carl Lindgren today became our newest rated glider pilot!
Here are the last couple of seconds of Carl's 3rd and final flight.
|Look closely and DPE Dan is smiling and saluting the camera.|
|A relaxed looking DPE, smiling for the camera, is a good sign.|
All takeoffs and landings were on runway 12L today. During the third and final flight, wind was out of the southeast to south, probably 15 knots, definitely favoring runway 12.
