HAPPY OCTOBER

First let’s congratulate Maciej Arkuszewski who flew his first glider solo last weekend. Way to go Maciej! Now comes the fun part. It’s a fine time of year for soaring here in the Mojave, cooler temps with still plenty of thermal activity each afternoon, and now nibbles of wave on occasion. (Sunday is the best candidate for wave in the next few days.)

The Perlan has made its maden flight up in Oregon recently. Click on either of these links for spectacular video and more information.:
