My 2005 Mosquito harness came with one of those. We tossed it out (replaced with Stubai) cuz it had a little line on it near a corner, after a little bit of use.

Launch/Landing trip this weekend?

I'd also be up for a trip to El Mirage this Sat/Sun to practice launch and landing. You can do a lot of those there in one pass up the lake. Email or call me if you're interested!

Calling all Mosquito Pilots!

It's that time of year again -- low sun angles making very smooth air. Time for some great scenic powered flying. I'd like to coordinate some flying trips. There's a bunch of interesting things to see around here. Fillmore valley, Trona Pinacles, North side of the San Gabriel Wilderness, .... Contac...

I'd signed up on the Yosemite HG club site a few weeks ago, but have had a schedule change such that I cannot go, unfortunately. I just entered a cancellation on the YHGC website.

Wow, just logging in for the first time in awhile. You're all fantastic!! Can hardly believe what you've gotten done in 16 mos I've been gone. And flush toilets... 5 years ago I wished that with the board, towards getting more chics in and around the sport (to solve a personal problem) ! Thank you a...

I think the point about the angle of the steep no-wind launch is great. I wonder if there's also an impact to that situation from the jaw-dropping vista right in front of you and the drop-off/cliff down a short bumpy launch ramp. I notice those had very significant impact on me and that impact has t...

I'm in a class all that weekend, but found Betty's instruction (less-extensive than this clinic, at her shop) tremendously useful. I give it a 5 star recommendation! Lets hear it for staying alive!

Go forth!

The gazebo is still a great idea. Extra glider storage will be great, too. I'm most interested in this benefit: Giving our club more permanence on the land, and having a nicer place for folks who are visiting. I think we need all the support we can possibly get, and then some, as an urban flight par...
