A great week of soaring at FLSC. Jack Gilbert scores his Silver Duration. Persistance pays off, we are proud of you Jack!
Mark Black does his second 50 km. Silver Distance flight. This time the documentation will be right!
Alex Moore did his Silver Duration flight in the 1-26 on Friday. Temperature at 7,000 ft was 11 deg C or 51.6 deg F. Alex was a bit cold up there dressed in t-shirt and shorts. Definitely under dressed in the drafty 1-26. Alex would fly out from under the clouds, out into the sun to stay warm.
Jake Smith stayed up for three hours in the Grob and encouraged Alex by flying with him.
Friday was a great soaring day. Cloud base at the Finger Lakes about 7,000 ft MSL and Wellsville was 8700 ft. MSL. Lift was still good at 6:30 PM.
