About Us

Learning to Fly.

Learning to Fly - Gliders III

In this podcast I share the three most exciting events that follow the first-time experience in a sailplane--my first solo, a solo flight that includes sharing a thermal with some vultures, and the successful checkride that makes me a Private Pilot-Glider. The picture above includes the DPE (the FAA Designated Pilot Examiner) Frank, his wife Jayne who is the tow-pilot and a record holding glider pilot, and Joe, my instructor. Have a listen...

A follow-up podcast will take us through the checkride. Have a listen...
