Flight Of The Day!
Date: 9/13/2017
Pilot: Richard Woodall
Glider: Krosno

Description: Commercial Pilot, Glider Practical Test!

Take a flight with us and experience the Joy Of Soaring!

You can also share the experience with another passenger in our Schwiezer 2-32 glider!
(prices listed below are for each passenger)

YouTube Video Our introductory orientation flights are for people of all ages who want to experience the Joy of Soaring, to fly without an engine - like a hawk. We often follow them - because they're always in the best lift! You'll be accompanied by one of our FAA Commercially Rated Pilots and you'll be able to spend your time enjoying what every glider pilot lives for!

Basic Orientation Flight: $82.00
Our tow plane will pull your glider 3,000 feet above the airport where you'll spend 20 minutes gliding around the Elsinore Valley. We may even gain 1000 feet altitude in a thermal, before returning for a safe, gentle landing. (Approximately 20-30 minutes.)

The "Cleveland Forest Magic Flight": $130.00
We'll go to 6,500 feet on the San Juan Capistrano side of the Ortega Mountains. With clear weather, we'll see Catalina and San Clemente Islands to the West. Sometimes, we'll be floating far above a magic carpet of coastal clouds. To the East, we have the 10,000 foot plus peaks of Baldy, San Gorgonio and San Jacinto. Should you want to, we'll share the flight controls and show you how to do simple maneuvers by yourself. You can even experience the thrill of feeling "light as a feather". (Approximately 40-45 minutes.)

promotional Flyer

Club promotional flyer is here:


Mike Havener, our Chief Instructor and former Club President, on Saturday Oct. 7th officially earned his FAA Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE) qualification for Gliders. This is a tremendous accomplishment, and is a testament to his depth of knowledge, experience, and fortitude. This is also a real plus for our club: to have our own DPE!

Pete Schutte achieves both his C and Bronze Badges

Pete Schutte had almost everything completed for both his C and Bronze Badges.  All he needed to wrap things up were the observed landings required for both and we were able to wrap those up today.  Then he completed the Bronze Badge test and now he has both his C and Bronze Badges.  

This is a noteworthy accomplishment and Pete deserves congratulations for his achievements.

Awesome job Pete!



Trevin Gillies First Solo!

Congratulations to Trevin Gillies on his First Solo Flight!  I'm sure most of you, at least those who fly on Sundays, know Trevin as one of the Line Crew.  Trevin has worked hard for his lessons and has now experienced the fun of flying without that annoying chatter coming from the back seat.

Join me in congratuling Trevin on his achievement!  Cool
