Cross Country Seminar Saturday, May 21, 10:30 to 12:00

Vitek has kindly agreed to lead a Cross-Country Seminar this Saturday, May 21, from 10:30 to 12:00 at the CSS clubhouse. Vitek has extensive experience flying cross-country; that experience includes flights greater than 500k, endurance flights, and high altitude flights. He has already posted a 385k, five-hour flight on the OLC this year.  Vitek is the holder of the FAI diamond badge.

We would like to encourage more members to safely fly cross-country flights and work toward a program to do this. Toward this goal, we need some work done on glider trailers and agreement on preparation that enables safe flights. We will be instituting a badge program as well, and we will have more seminars in the weeks that follow. We'll talk more about this after Vitek's seminar. Please join us this Saturday.
