HI ALL

Hope this e-mail finds you all doing well!

We’re still scheduling through e-mail, so please check availability on Schedule Pointe first (for Fri/Sat/Sun) then e-mail us your reservation request. If you don’t have a Schedule Pointe account, please e-mail us date options for your reservation. Include your cell number. Do not schedule reservations yourself, until further notice.

When we confirm with you, you’ll receive our mitigation procedures. We look forward to seeing you at the field!

The weather this coming weekend may not be as dynamic as last week, but should be easier to take on the ground, meaning not too hot and not too windy. Midsummer in the Mojave, count yer blessings!

Stay safe and healthy and wishing you good spirits,
The Soaring Academy Crew

HI ALL

Congratulations this week go to Jeremiah Seifert who had his first Glider Solo! ¬†Jeremiah learned to fly as a 16 year old at Ramona Airport, got his certification in SEL at 17 and has done a lot of flying since then. He’s currently working on his add on rating and this past week solo’d the glider. He says “this is the most fun form of flying!”
As for weather this weekend, look for blue midsummer thermals, improving each day until cooling on Sunday to possible hints of wave in the afternoon.

HI ALL

Congratulations this week goes to one of our crew members, Justin Gillen, for earning his commercial add-on rating!

When we confirm with you, you’ll receive our mitigation procedures. We look forward to seeing you at the field!Late June means the longest days and highest sun, and this coming weekend should bring soaring conditions commensurate with the calendar. Expect tall blue boomers each day this weekend, and once the wind picks up PM, look for shear line activity coming from the west or south, depending on all the usual variables.

Don’t forget to checkout the Podcast “Soaring-the-Sky”. Chuck interviews glider pilots from all over the world, including many from our field, who tell stories of flying, provide their take on safety and more.

Stay safe and healthy and wishing you good spirits,

HI ALL

Just a reminder, we’re currently open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s been a pleasure to see so many of you knocking off the rust and working on ratings, over the past few weeks. We are very grateful to be back at work, helping you reach your goals. It is really good to be busy!
If you’d like to schedule an upcoming lesson or book a glider rental and you have a Schedule Pointe account, until further notice, please check availability on Schedule Pointe first (for Fri/Sat/Sun) and then e-mail us your reservation request. If you don’t have a Schedule Pointe account, please e-mail us date options for your reservation. Please include your cell number. Do not schedule reservations yourself, until further notice.
When we confirm with you, you’ll receive our new mitigation procedures. We look forward to seeing you at the field!
These are the longest days of the year, with the highest sun exposure, even on north slopes. So not only should all the usual sweet spots be working, for the next month or so everything should be working. One more reason why Crystal’s the best!
Stay safe and healthy and wishing you good spirits,
