Check out this article from the IEEE  (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers): 10 Electric Planes to Watch.  It's interesting, but not surprising, that these aircraft are all gliders or glider-like.

Rain Rain Rain
Time for Reminiscing of warmer days with 2 miles of lift......
Here is a portal to 15 minutes of last Summer, a collection of clips that tell a single story of soaring flight from Wenatchee, WA, climbing west to the mountains to escape the sweltering heat of July.

For best effect, choose 720p resolution (gear icon) if your connection will support it.
If you made it to Wings and Wheels last Fall, you saw this already, but outside light doesn't do it justice. It looks much better inside with normal PC monitors.

Wings over Sweden

Have you heard of "kickstarter"? It's a capital-raising website where  investors (aka web surfers) can get together to fund a business opportunity.  A group from Sweden just raised money to complete a documentary series titled "Wings over Sweden".  The promo's look fun, hope to see the final product when finished.

Congratulations, Mark!

Club-member Mark Adams has landed another one of his photographs on the front cover of this months Soaring Magazine.   Congratulations, Mark!

By the way, that's Marks handiwork across the top of our webpage.  That photo was taken from the cockpit of the club's L-33 from high over Badger Mountain, which is a just few miles North-East of our home field.
