Very good day Tuesday (tomorrow)

Looks like a very good chance for a 7500 ft. Day tomorrow. If you don’t have to work consider flying Kagel.
Watch out for the traffic in Victor Airway 459. Best to stay below 6000 in this area.

This is one of the best flying vacations on the planet, if you like great thermal soaring every day, with climbs to over 10,000 ft., large landing areas, xc flights and training and almost everything done for you. Rudy Gotes runs a first-class operation and if you're a 30 or 40 hr pilot wishing to a...

Re: Katherine Yardley - Sad News

Saturday was a great event I think, for everyone who attended. I thought I'd post a nostalgic photo shgafloat1.jpg of Katherine leading the SHGA's float entry in the Sylmar Parade (early 1980s) Katherine is on the left in the foreground. The float is Rome Dodson's pickup truck with a western town mu...

New Wild Things insulated flight suit from Kris Greblo

I'm posting this for Kris. It is a warm and expensive, one-piece, thinsulate, flight suit that's perfect for winter flying. It's very well made and cost over $300.00 new. Never worn and sized for someone about 6' and 200 lbs; 36" shoulder to crotch. Make Kris an offer if you like it.

Emergency LZ now cleared

Somehow the emergency lz (near the base of the Pacoima Dam) has been graded and is now much safer to land on if needed. Imagine that!
The road to launch has been graded as well.

I’ve got to thank Josh and Andy over at windsports for sending me down to run another flying trip to Valle de bravo. We were a fun group of 8, flying every day and getting as high as 13000 ft. Where else in the world can you soar everyday in the winter and spring. Getting pampered with your own set ...

Re: Land Next to LZ is For Sale

Only the past political climate and nothing else, prevented 2 previous attempts to build more than a dozen homes there. I view this as one of the more serious threats to our flying future. The other two serious threats we should be concerned about are the sale and development of our launch site and ...
