Saturday June 4th, 2022: Chris O. Solos!

Visibility: +10sm
Wind: Light south wind in the morning turning into an 6kt north wind in the afternoon
Altitudes: Lift to 6000 ft over the valley
Time Aloft:
Max Lift: 10 kts
Temperature: Not too bad for an almost summer day
Tow pilot: Goki Yamada

Saturday June 4th saw some fun and productive ops at the gliderport. Thank you to everyone who came out and made this Saturday run smoothly.

Congrats to Chris O'Donnell on a first Solo! After a check out with Kevin in 22S, he was off on his own. He must of found some lift because his first solo flight clocked in at 1 hour and 26 minutes!

The days weather ended up being better than expected with lift up to 6,000 ft over the valley. Legend has it even some 10kt thermals were encountered multiple times today! Thanks to Goki for towing and making the day possible for us. We were able to get 15+ flights! 

Kevin was able to get 3 FAST Rides in to Robert, Mike and Kirsty. I was able to get in 5 flights in for checkride prep! For glass ships, Peter helped Richard get familiar with glider 06; they both took turns taking 06 out over black with plenty of luck finding lift. Meanwhile Mitch had a great flight in DL also flying west to Black and Tar.
