Spring Air Results

Congrats to all! Who took the spot landing? It looked like Joe's old partner (forgive me for not knowing his name) nailed it! Do tell!

Saddle Launching

I've been launching the saddle for a while now with no incidents yet, thankfully. I never make the attempt in gusty conditions, or when it's not straight in.

LZ culture

I think I'did like to weigh in here, I tend to side with Greg. There is a culture among hang glider pilots that is unique among outdoor sports. What we do is dangerous. We do everything we can to mitigate that danger, but in the end, the possibility of death rides along with us on every flight. A bi...

Blown Launch

Thanks for sharing, Ken. I learned a lot from your narrative. In particular: 1. Always leave yourself enough room on the ramp for an effective launch, given the conditions. 2. Never allow the pressure of pilots behind you, or any other perceived pressures, to influence your decision to launch. I app...

OP
