May 8/13 – Pat, Paul and Bob PPG course – day 5 – am – Paul first flight!

Started again at 7 am. Very good conditions. Bob took off first – he has got it down! Pat struggled a bit in no wind conditions till I have explained to him the “create your own wind” technique. After this, the take off was no longer a problem. Paul was ready to fly on trike. We have tried about 10 inflations till he finally locked the glider in and took off in very controlled fashion. Good flight but bit rough landing. Congrats Paul on your first solo!  Bob managed 7 flights this am and Pat 8 flights.

Summary after 5 training days:

  • Pat 27 flights
  • Bob 23 flights
  • Paul 1 flight
